SOURCE: Blown head gasket
Unfortunately there are too many things that could be wrong Most mechanics will not be tied to a price because the head gasket alone is probably not the only fault.Generaly the head itself is the culprit for the symptom your giving.It may be corroded or cracked and may not be repairable.Then theres all the other bits and pieces like hoses,thermostat etc.Once its all apart and can be inspected you will get your quote,head is usualy sent to machine shop to be inspected and a price for repair/replacement is given by them.Usualy takes a couple of days to get a full quote unless your mechanic has all the nessecary tools and equipment to do it on site.Good luck and hope it all works out ok

probably not. put aluminum seal in the cooling system and top off antifreeze. you may need a hose or fitting from where you are decribing the leak. if the leak stops with the sealant you are good to go. otherwise take it to a shop and they will tell you. do not tell them you think it is a head gasket.
