Question about Lexus ES 330
Was told that I have a blown head gasket. I did see dry coolant around gasket. is it true that I have a blown head gasket.
You need to do a pressure test on the cooling system ,and maybe use some dye and use a black light to check the area you believe the leak is at . Hope this helps

The average sale price for a 91 Lexus in the US, is $3900.00. Used radiator would be around $200.00. Machine shop to machine the head (highly recommended) $500.00 to $1000.00. Gaskets and hoses another $200.00. I don’t know how much you have into it, but I hope this helps your decision.

SOURCE: head gasket blown
there are many was a head gasket can blow . sometimes they just leak to the outside sometimes they leak to the coolant and then it blows out your antifreeze. if you have a blown head gasket you will see it when you pull the head. and yes you should hace the head checked at a machine shop and install with a new head set never reuse a gasket .

SOURCE: blown head gasket
I would change both, as well as use new head bolts. Make sure your heads are not warped or cracked, especially the one that is leaking. There may not be any need to change the head if it is not cracked. These are prone to blowing a gasket especially after 150K miles or so. It will not cost a huge additional amount to change both head gaskets since the engine will have to be disassembled down to the heads anyway. Hope this helps you, Rick

sealers usually end up costing you more in the long term than the short term. these sealers react to heat and air. so you end up doing nothing more than plugging up you radiator, water passage ports, water pumps get damaged. causing more over heating problems than they solve. no i would go for what the shop gave you as a quote. that seems a pretty reasonable quote for the position you are in.
