The worst of it is not even the high price. Every time you replace the filter, you are opening the intake plumbing and introducing the possibility of not getting a good seal with the new filter. Engine dusting is a very real possibility with a leak after the air filter. Diesels don't have much tolerance for poor intake filtration.

That is a very good price for an oil change, all filters and grease. I will be looking into these shops for future reference.

Here is how I got ripped off on the first maintenance on my MH and I will never give a blank check anymore for any service on a MH. One of the reason I went to Walie after that.

I really got scr....., I did'nt know better and took it to a Cummins / big truck shop thinking they would do a good job at a fair price. They asked me if they also check fluids, tires and grease. I gave them the OK to go. They did a good job, but they really ripped me off. I realized after the fact that they where doing all these very simple, I mean very simple task at $110 an hour. Air in tires, grease in a few nipples, checking fluids, these are very simple task that could be done by anybody with minimum training, not by the super tech of the floor.

Here are the details on the bill:

Oil and fuel filter change: $244
Grease: $44
Check and fill tire pressure: $32
Check and fill coolant; $36

This total: $356. Add %15 tax on this!!

Never again!

Why bother to post it if you know it "isn't correct"?

Mel, the OP stated he has a Cummins ISL. I quoted a reply that gave the wrong price for Speedco's PM service on that engine and provided a link to the correct price. Is there a problem with that?

No problem!
When you wrote "This isn't correct" I assumed you meant that what you were posting "was not correct".....(just like the bad "Link" in that same message).
Apparently I misunderstood.
Sorry
