Depends on where you go to. Call around and ask. I just came from a parts store a few hours ago and asked about a head job...resurfacing and cleaning/inspecting...$138 for BOTH heads...Chevy 350. It shouldn't cost that much at all for you...unless you are looking to get a valve job at the same time. They should call you to let you know after the before-mentioned if you need a grind job. around. And, it should only take a day to get this done. I know taking in a bare head is about $25 to get it hot tanked.

How do I fix the check engine light? mechanic says the code refers to Transmission solenoids, is that a big job? can anyone fix it or should i go to the dealer?

Not that bad of a job. Messy though. Drop the pan and pull the valve body. You'll save by doing it your self. So get a manual from About $30. Your transmission is a re5r05a. Thing is , you need to check all the solenoids. If all them work, then your looking at replacing the TCM. Which is mounted on top of the valve body. This entails a reprogram for the TCM.

1988 f150 has a rough idle

For the cost of it I'd pull IAC valve/motor off & try cleaning it & port that it comes out of. A can of throttle body spray cleaner , and 1/2hr, is all you need to try it.
