awesome, thanks man. I am down in way south austin, but I would be willing to drive for good shop, especially someone who knows jeeps. Already been to Jeep Masters down south, and they charge an arm and a leg for everything.

Austin area mechanic or help

Anyone in the Austin area want to help do my rear main seal? I am mechanically inclined, but don't have much experience working on jeeps or autos.

here's the situation. First took it to shop, told valve cover and RMS leaking. Was told just do valve cover first and see if that stops it. Did the valve cover, seemed to stop for a bit, then the leak came back. I took it to another shop, was told the RMS shouldn't be leaking with only 82,000 miles. Mechanic then tells me the valve cover was never done and needs to be replaced. Got my money back from other shop, had the valve cover done again. This stopped the leak for about 2 weeks. Now the leak is back and seems to be getting worse. I crawled under and it definitely looks to be coming from the rear main seal.

I've been quoted from 350 to 450 for the repair, mostly probably goes towards labor.

Any help or even recommendations for a honest/fair mechanic?
