I have a 2006 Chev 3500 Duramax 4x4 and I need to know what the labor would be to put on the air intake heater. I cannot find it on my labor guide unless I am using the wrong wordage. Thanks in advance!

You might not find this and other things in any normal labor guide as to time allowed. What is the circumstance you need a time allowed for this? Are you writing a quote for an exact cost?


At some age or jobs with certain snags I would just make a good guess or chose an hourly rate with a maximum. If for some reason you exceed that you eat it or decline certain work something like this or about anything,

I have to give my labor charge for a business job. Just labor no parts. Any idea of what would be a good price?

IDK is the answer. How do you make a guess on anything with some age on it how long it would take? Do you HAVE to quote this job? Choose real high if no other choice and if less than you thought lower cost or you win. Sometimes you'll lose. That's the way it goes.
You are or seem to be bidding on a job with parts provided which is already a chance they aren't proper or some unforeseen issue.


This is hard to bid on if only real dumb stuff if rusty, corroded, perhaps something cross threaded now or wrong parts provided for some reason then what will you do?


If you must just choose a time X labor rate and win or lose,

I'd go 2 hours. If it takes you less, that will make the customer happy. I looked at the service information and it doesn't look like a big deal. I believe they give you an hour to pull the inlet hose.
