Gasket itself is about 170, other gaskets likely another 50, antifreeze and oil etc about another 30.Lab should be abt 6hrs X whatever rate the shop gets...I'll guess 70hr=420. total= 670.plus tax so, the shop seems to be about 130 high, but I'm guessing at these #s but I'm usually pretty close. Of course you could get your wrenches out and save a bunch on labor. (should take a regular guy about 10hrs without the aid of air tools).

Depends on wether or not the head was cracked or not. Your Taurus head may have been able to be machined, saving you the cost of purchasing a new head. Of course, most times the head has to be sent out to check for cracks, so if that was not done then you could be getting overcharged.

HOW MUCH IT WILL COST TO FIX A UPPER OIL LEAK GASTRET?


-Depend on which one you want to replace...?
Hear is basic and if you do it yourself:
If Only valve cover gasket. it'll be around 15 to 20 dollar.
If Only head gasket. It'll be around 20 to 70 dollars for gasket and also recommend to replace all head bolt if you do head gasket. So it 'll be another addition 30 to 70 dollars.
-But if you pay a shop to do for you. they will consider rebuild the whole engine. (It will cost you around 1200 to 2000 dollars)
Don't take my words. This is just give you the idea. It could be more or less.

Good Luck

How much does it cost to replace a head gasket


Head gasket kit will cost around $100. If you are taking it to a garage to replace, I would estimate $500 - $1000. But that will depend on the service rates in your area and the exact shop. Shop around for estimates.

What would it cost to replace gasket on a 1998 Lumina V6 3.8


sounds like you have blown head gasket, or cracked head, did the motor run hot, if so, you can try head gasket, maybe you will get lucky, also i would replace intake gaskets, parts should be anywhere from 50.00 to 200.00 dollars, depends were you get them,need to clean out cyclinder with antifreeze in it, and check other ones too, pull plugs out get somebody to turn motor over watch for antifreeze coming out of spark plug holes, maybe you can put head gasket on and keep on riding...

Well i want to buy this car. but The only issue with it is the head gasket is popped or the radiator needs replaced so the car over-heats after about 5 miles ? can i repair it ? how much you think it will...


First you need to determine if it's the head gasket or the radiator, as the cost and labor involved is very different. Is the oil or antifreeze contaminated? If so, most likely its the head gasket. Keep in mind also that if the head gasket failed and the car overheated, the cylinder head may be warped or even cracked. After removing the head, take it to a machine shop and have it checked. As far as cost goes, it depends on whether you do it or not. A head gasket set will probably run you around 50 - 75 dollars, and figure 150 - 200 for the machine shop to check it. These are very round figures, and you might want to call a couple of parts stores to get prices for the gasket set, and call a machine shop and ask them what they're charging to clean and inspect an overheated head.

Perform compression check between cylenders #1 and #3. These are right next to each other.
You might get away with a head gasket replacement, if the compression between these cylenders is the same, indicating a blown head gasket between cyl.#1 and #3 not valves which will give different readins between these cylenders.
