Is there a book cd or online website that provides flat rate labor time and how long a job should take out there. For example like replace a drive belt w an auto tensioner would list it as 1 hr worth of work or doing an engine oil change may pay only 0.4 hr worth of time.

Thanks in advance.

It depends on the car you're talking about.

I have memberships on shopkey and alldata that provide not only procedures, but also give the book time for the repairs, but they are by yearly subscription. I think you can get it on the free version, but I am not sure. As a community service for you, if you care to PM me your vehicle's info (VIN will suffice) and the repair task in question, I will be happy to look it up for you.

Alldata tends to be one of the databases that most Libraries offer for free (sometimes along with Chiltons, sometimes it's one or the other). I know the 2 libraries I worked for in the IT department offered them, and the 4 I've cards to in other states all offer it as well. So it's information that can be had for free, from home, once you obtain a library card. Or walk into any library and use their computers without the need for a card.
