How much would it cost to fix the head gasket pontiac sunfire 1999

If you get a Haynes or Chilton's repair manual on your vehicle and do it yourself, about $60 for the Head Gasket. If you have a shop do it about $200.

My 2003 dodge caravan SE 3.3 liter is smoking white smoke and the oil in the dip stick is whiteish. I know i either have a blown head gasket or cracked head but how much would the repair be and can i do it...

i would not sujest doing this kinda work your self if your not into working on engines the only reason i say this is that there is a lot that goes into replacing these gaskets you dont really need any special tools you will need a tourge wrench i would go buy a haynes or chiltons repair manual it will give you step by step instructoins on how to do the repairs and after you read the steps then you should be able to decied weather you want to do the repairs. as far as the cost from a shop would charge normal around 350 to 600 depending on if the head needs to be replaced or machined.

You can purchase one at an autoparts store for about $20 - $25 or on ebay for $10. A haynes or chilton manual will give you step by step instructions. If you've never done this before you are looking at about 2 - 4 days of work and make sure to GET THE HEAD(S) RESURFACED. Don't try to save money by skipping this step doing so will make you do the whole thing over again.

Blown head gasket

That would be a lot to type out on the computer.
My best advise would be to get a Chilton Manual at the autoparts store. It cost about $20. You'll get all the info you need plus pictures and diagrams. The Chilton book will be the best research material for the type of job you are going to do.

1994 old cutlass ciera 3100 blown head gasket.

Get a Chilton's book on the car. It will take you thru the whole job, and give you the torque specs for putting it back together. You will need a torque wrench, foot pounds, and a good socket set.

White smoke or steam coming out of exhaust pipe,

Its funny that everyone has solved the problem without any answers to critical questions. In this case, everyone is right and everyone is wrong. ONLY careful testing and observation will determine if there is an actual problem. I do not solve problems just to be first. Even in a hands-on situation I refuse to jump to conclusions before testing, otherwise you run the risk of at best, "chasing your tail" or at worst, tearing into a perfectly good engine to prove nothing!!!
Happy New Year!!!!
