Simons Auto Repair
I recently (09/22/17) took my Son's Car to Simons Auto Repair 1801 W US Highway 50, O'Fallon, IL. location, and was told the repair was just a slave cylinder at first and it would cost $180, as the clutch was not working properly. Later, we received a call and was told that the clutch and maybe the flywheel now need to be changed and it would would be anywhere from $1000-$1200 for the repairs. I spoke with the owner and told him this is for my Son's Car and to please not gouge him as he doesn't have the money for absorbent repair costs, which he explained to me that he understood and would do what he could. A few days later we picked up the Car and was presented a Bill of $1361.27, so I asked the Owner of this shop, why so much? He explained that the parts cost more than he had anticipated. We conceded and paid the bill but complained that it seemed very high for what was done. After I drove the Car back home, I decided to research the parts costs and found that we were charged roughly 3 times the actual cost of the parts, as I called the local Parts Supply store that all of the local Auto Repair Shops use. (Slave Cylinder charge $64.91/Cost $20.79, Flywheel charge $185.62/Cost $55.98, Clutch charged $305.02/Cost $155.98). When I called the owner and told him that I had researched the costs of the parts and found his prices 3 times the actual cost, he informed me that was his cost, so I explained that I had called the local Parts Supply stores and found the prices were much less, he explained that he didn't use this supplier, so I asked which supplier he used and he could not immediately explain which Supplier he used. I explained to him that I felt he should refund the difference in what we were charged vs the actual cost or I would be leaving his Business (Simons Auto Repair 1801 W US Highway 50 O'Fallon IL) a very negative report with the applicable Business Review websites. He explained that he didn't care and that he would not adjust the bill.

Tips & Advices
You should change your oil filter whenever you change your oil, that is, approximately every 7,500 miles.
A oil filter is a device that helps remove contaminants from motor oil as it passes through the engine. A pump pushed the oil through the filter where it is strained and goes back to the engine.
High-mileage oil contains special conditioners that are said to help prevent gaskets from drying out and thus preventing leaks. This can be beneficial to engines with many miles on them.
Synthetic oil costs more than conventional oil, but the price is offset by the need for less frequent oil changes due to the oil’s durability.
Tools needed to change your own oil include jack stands or ramps, a wrench, an oil filter wrench, an oil drip pan, funnel, replacement oil filter, and replacement oil.
