I need to replace the head gasket is it worth it

I need to know how much it would cost to replace a 1993 ford tempo head gasket? It is smoking and that is what is most likely needed to be done. Is it worth to buy on the cheap or is not worth any time or money?

Is the smoke sweet smelling and white? Antifreeze, If blue, then oil. It probably isn't worth it. Head gasket job are $400 or more. If it is an oil problem, much more.

Grey smoke is most likely anti-freeze. Usually it is white smoke coming out. This indicates that there is water getting into the combustion chamber. You will need to take the car in to get tested.

The least costly thing to do that is still properly fixing it would be to replace the head gasket. However, you may have a cracked head. In this situation you would need to replace the head. Has the car ever overheated?

White smoke out of exhaust on my 90 Bonneville......Checked oil looks fine.......What should I expect to pay to have head gasket replaced ??


I was going to say the same thing, sign of white smoke blowing out of your exhuast pipe is usually radiator fluid being leaked into the cylinder and being combusted. In this case it look like it's oyur head gasket and it needs replacment. A head gasket repair is a major work to be done, and it may take up to anywhere from 7-12hrs+ depending on how complicated things are. Most of the repair bill comes from labor and installation. In some case, the engine need to be removed from the car and to be rebuilded. You may be looking at a hefty price tag anywhere from the lowest 800 to 1700.oo+ cost wise. The more cylinder your engine is, the more the price will be. Sometime it is cheaper just to replace the engine, or entirely savage the car and get a new one if the repair bill is more then the car is worth.. You'll have to call around your local repair shop to get a quote vs replacing the engine and deciding if it is best to repair, replace, or savage.

Bad rings or blown head gasket. You'll have to replace both to replace the rings so I would go ahead and replace the rings and Head gasket and have the valves checked while you have the head off. Paying a little more now is well worth it trust me.

Is a 91 topaz cylinder head compatible with a 1993 ford tempo


Call a recylcler (junk yard) and they can tell you if the head will fit the 93 tempo

91 tempo run rough with white exhaust


If you are sure it is white smoke and the car overheats or looses water,The head gasket is bad.
Or It's valve seals or rings smokes (but the smoke would have a blueish tint)
