Q: A few service recommended by last shop

asked by on

The last shop I took it to recommended the oil pan gasket be replaced. I don't see any leaks anywhere and this is a pretty expensive repair so I'm not sure about this one.

Recommendation #2 - Replace Valve Cover Gasket. Recommendation #3 - Tie Rod Ends (Right-Outer - both) so I'm assuming Front and Rear. Recommendation #4 - Sway Bar Links/kit - Front Stabilizer Bar Control Link - Both.

Can you give me some insight as to whether I need these or not and what are the results if not done. Thanks.

My car has 189000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
