Default oil pan leak

I noticed a little oil on the garage floor and took car to a mechanic. He said oil pan gasket needs to be replaced, and charge is $335. As it is over 2 hours labor. Does this sound correct?

Yes about right for the time. Closer to 2 hours unless it is a real mess under their. What some that are not in the business forget and don't know to account for is the X factor. That is how dirty vehicles is that needs to have things cleaned just to first get to the part needing attention. The flat rate guides only considers the perfect R&R situation. Keep in mind he will need either sealer or gasket and oil perhaps a couple misalinus parts?
