    It looks like I had answered this same question. The information I had given you for this particular posting was for the valve cover gaskets alone.

What is cost to replace valve cover gasket on 2002 dodge neon?


To replace the valve cover gasket shouldn't be that expensive. Although those cars are known for blown head gaskets, so I would have them look carefully at the back of the engine for an oil leak. If it is leaking oil out of the head, it is only a matter of time before the head gasket will be pushing anti-freeze. Please rate my answer so I get points for it.

Leaking valve cover on 1998 pathfinder


The valve cover gaskets can be a large job on this vehicle and could cost you $450-490 depending on the labor rate in your area. I would quote 5.5 hours; the rear main seal could be about the same, maybe $100 more in labor time.



I would expect an engine with this mileage to leak some oil... not drip, but seep oil on the hot engine and produce a smell or smoke. Make sure the PCV system is working correctly, use thicker weight engine oil like 50 weight Castrol and use an over the counter oil additive like Engine Restore, which you can buy at your local auto parts store.

Hope this helps (remember to rating this answer and leave some testimonial comment).

How do i replace a blown headgasket


To replace a blown head gasket requires a lot of labor on this vehicle. Its a v6, meaning you have 2 head gaskets to replace instead of just 1. It requires removing air cleaner, disconnecting battery, removing most of the accessories that are belt driven, removing the intake manifold, egr valve and tubing, exhaust manifold on both sides of engine, timing belt removal, valve covers, and a few smaller items. After removing everything on top of the engine, you'll have access to the cylinder head bolts. Removing them will allow you to lift off the cylinder heads. Before replacing the gaskets, you must send them to a machine shop to have the gasket surface milled true flat again. They must also be inspected for cracks (which will sometimes happen with blown head gaskets) which would render them useless.
If this is a vehicle you really like, perhaps consider investing in a quality used motor. Its less labor intensive, less repeat repair, and you may come out saving a few bucks.

Hay i got a 1997 dodge intrepid and on the driver side the bk spark plug i went to pull it out and when i got it out my spark plug and scocke was coveger in oil do u no why and how to fix it


Sparkplug tube seals are leaking. You will need to remove the valve covers and replace the valve cover gaskets and the round seals in the middle of the cover. the tube seals should come with valve cover gaskets.

2001 VW Passat, has 120,000 miles. I'm told the


You didn't tell us in which currency that '2780' was quoted but if US $, that seems unreasonable to me.
Timing belts can cost >$100 but not often and vary in degrees of difficulty to replace; on one of our cars (87 X1/9) it's about a 30 minute job. A Subaru Outback is more like a couple of hours so yours is likely in that range somewhere.
Valve cover and transmission gaskets aren't normally that tough to replace and cost little; check one of the chain auto parts sites to verify that. It only takes a few minutes to run up the potential parts cost and the labor should run well under a $1000 total.
Now you have a second opinion but, get a 3rd one in person.

Rear seal- 1994 dodge caravan. 3.3 liter V6 automatic


Well to change out a rear main seal on any engine isn't an easy task on that one through a shop probabley 6 hours of labor or so,shop rates vary but I would say labor alone to be at least $250.00-$350.00 and for the seals and gaskets probabley $50.00-$75.00 so if a shop does it your bill should be about $300.00 min.and $425.00 max.

What is the labor time to replace valve cover gaskets on a 2003 mercury grand marquis?


I'm not sure what the labor time is but technically it doesnt take ALL that long. Besides removing a few parts to clear a way to the covers. I would assume somewhere around 3-5 hours is what you might get hit up for.

Oil leak and oil burning


if your oil burning is upon start up then i would suggest you get your valve seals replaced while you are getting your valve covers done if its a non-stop while it runs then its your rings if you opt to get the valve seals fixed you would be looking at probably $250 but your gaskets would be included the deciding factor for me would be the amount of oil consumption and how much i would save in the long run good luck
