SOURCE: 1998 nissan Altima blown head gasket repair price

It's really hard to tell how much it will cost to fix this because you don't know how much damage has been done to the engine itself because of the blown head gasket. Assuming you caught it early and there is no damage to the engine, you are looking somewhere between $1100 - $1400. A website you can look at that gives you prices for repair estimates is Thanks for rating my response but please let me know if you have any more questions before deciding you give a poor rating. Thanks for using FixYa!

SOURCE: oil leak in a 98 plymouth breeze 2.0

I've had a 1990 Acclaim, a 1990 Shadow, and a 1998 Breeze, all have a head gasket leak. The Breeze was the only one to have oil leak and it was on the rear of the engine. I'd guess that's your problem.

SOURCE: What is the average cost to repair a blown head

if you do it yourself, the gasket it probably like 50, intake gasket 30 , plus new head bolts, anywhere from 5-10 dollars each. if the head needs resurfacing its like 50, plus valve job is 140, --

the average, if you do it your self is about 500-

now if you have block damage, or severe head damage, that cost will go up significantly, and i dont know why you are replacing your head gasket or i could help you out with the price better.. leave a comment and i will answer your questions if you want.

if you take it to a dealer, it will be anywhere from 1500average to 3000 and up for significant damage..

why are you replacing head gasket?

SOURCE: 1996 plymouth breeze, leaking water pump. how

this depends on your level of mechanical expertise - it is an internal water pump, meaning you will need to disassemble the timing components to service (this is also a good time to replace the timing belt, as it needs to come off anyways and the belt is relatively inexpensive). if your vehicle has the 2.4 liter engine, there is nothing very difficult about this timing belt. however, i tend to caution people about attempting this if they are inexperienced, as reassembling the timing components incorrectly can cost you and engine. good luck!

SOURCE: 1997 breeze is shooting codes 12 46 43 55

OBD Code 12 - No Distributor Reference Pulse (Diagnostic Test Active) The Engine Control Module-ECM uses the distributor reference pulse to calculate the engine speed. On newer engines, the Crank Shaft Position Sensor performs this function.


  • When flashing the Check Engine Light to read codes, code 12 will always display first, indicating the diagnostic system is active
  • The engine will not run with a "hard" code 12 set
Common Problems:
  • Chances are you will never need to diagnose a code 12. Rather, the problem would be a crank, no-start condition.
  • If code 12 does not flash, that would indicate a communication problem with the ECM.
  • Code 12 does not show when reading codes with a scan tool. If there is a communication problem, the scan tool will let you know.

OBD Code 46 - Pass-Key II System Error - Circuit out of Frequency Range The ECM receives a signal from the Pass-Key module. When the correct signal is received, the ECM will allow the engine to start and run. Please review the RepairPal article on the GM Pass-Key Anti-theft systems for more information.

  • Engine may not start
Common Problems:
  • Faulty ignition lock cylinder

OBD Code 43 - Knock Sensor error The ECM receives a signal from the Knock Sensor based on the amount of engine ping detected. The ECM uses information from this sensor to help calculate fuel delivery and spark timing.

  • Engine ping
  • Lack of power
Common Problems:
  • Faulty Knock sensor
  • Poor connection at Knock sensor

OBD Code 55 - End Test.

Hope ehit help (remember comment and rated this).

1999 plymouth breeze,coolant boils when car is turned off, my defrost freezes up my front window, the hose gets hard

Did you bleed the air from the cooling system as outlined in the factory service manual? Has the radiator been cleaned by a professional radiator repair shop, is the head cracked? You had it tested for cracks? It is one of these most likely that is causing the problem or a combination of them.

New thermostate, hoses, radiator. Water evaporates in 20 minutes of driving, but no visible leaks. heard about air in system but have no idea how to fix.

First off, how is the rad cap, it should hold 18 psi, use good antifreeze, and make sure
the rad fan comes on at 212'F, with a 2.4L 4cly engine, head gaskets are known to leak
on this engine, is this a city drive problem? have a knowlegdable tech help out on this
repair, it's a big job. Gasket prone to fail over 100,000 miles.

1998 Plymouth Breeze Leaking oil. Not an immense amount, but enough that I would like to get it fixed. I have gone to many so called "experts" and well lets just say im frustrated. Some have said that it...

The head gasket has been redesigned ( a multi layered design) for the 4 cylinder. Oil leaks are common. The coolant doesn't always leak with this condition. It is far cheaper to just add oil as needed. However,the new head gasket is far better than the original. be sure to surface the head to get the best possible repair. looking into the engine compartment the leak would be on the right side of the head on the firewall side.

Oily coolant

yes, it is a definite sign of blown head gasket.
I did have only once a problem similar where the engine block was cracked but other than that,bet on the head gasket.
Take a coolant system pressure measurement, (if your head gasket is blown, the pressure in your coolant system would go down slowly)
