Ford charges some 60 dollars plus tax only. Try your car's dealer.

Ye Xiaoming is okay to go for changing oil, but NEVER do any real job at his place.
Last winter, I had one tire moderately leaking, two slitely leaking, so I had him repaired 3 of them. He charged me 60 dollars which would be 36 dollars plus tax at dealers' place. I didn't complain at all because he usually charges 20 dollars only for oil changing. He got to have some place to make more profit just like anyone else.

The result: two were fixed, but one formerly slitely leaking tire was fixed to be quick leaking. Well, it is just fine for me since nobody can garantee a perfect work. I went back to him. He told me he was too busy that week. I said fine and drove home. The tire was really leaking fast. I had to recharge it every week. Please notice it was deep winter. Imagine how terrible to expose yourself in the minus 20 degree for minutes.

I went back two week later. He said he was busy again. No problem, I drove back. This thing went back and forth for 5 times, each time he told me he had something more important to do. At last, he agreed to fix it for me. He hanged the car and spread some soup fluid onto the tire. Bubbles were emerging quickly. He commented: this leaking is just too little to fix. He recommanded to buy some magic thing from Canadian tire to fix it myself. He let me go.

During the whole winter, I recharged the tire once a week. My god, it was terrible. At someday this last March, I went back again, directly insisted him to fix it for me. He did. It took him about 10 minutes to do it. He charged me 30 dollars (he pretended forgot he has charged 20 dollars for it before and he seemed to have no price standard at all so that he charges you as per his immediate feeling). I paid him. And God bless me, it worked.

Today, I still go to his place to change oil. But I now realize that he is okay only for changing oil. He doesn't have any sense to give you any warrantee and for none routine projects, he charges far more than dealers.

I am very sorry to say some bad story about people. I usually don't do that. God forgive me. And readers, please take my story as reference only.

I wish Ye XiaoMing serve our mainland chinese community better than ever.

I had a transmission problem recently. I felt the car hesitated a lot when I pressed gass pedale. So I asked him to estimate the cost to have it fixed. He said it would be at 1,000 to 1,900 Canadian range because a transmission problem could never be a trivial one. I somewhat trusted him. Yes, as you may guess, I am a car idiot just like many of us. You ask somebody in the street. You usually get a similiar answer that the estimation is reasonable.
I told the story to my teamleader who suggested me go to Ford to have a computer analysis anyway. At Ford, after 79 dollars, it turned out to be a sensor problem. A sensor that understands the current position of the gear in transmission was broken, so the transmission works randomly and frantically.

I spent some 79 dollars for computer check. 95 dollars for the sensor, and 3 hour labour. It summed up to be 400 dollars including the computer work.

My goodness, I saved myself thousands of dollars. I am lucky.
