Question about 1992 Ford F250
My mom just purchased a 2000 ford taurus for me for 800$. We took the car to get the radiator flushed and the oil changed and they refused to do it because the coolant is mixing with the oil and it would be pointless. He said we needed to either to invest in a new engine or change the head gasket. How much would a new head gasket cost including labor???
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
