    Considerations
  1. Many internal engine problems, such as a blown head gasket, cracked head or cracked piston, can be repaired without having to replace an entire engine.
  2. Potential
  3. While taking the time to replace an engine may seem labor-intensive and costly, it will add years to a vehicle's life and will save a car owner from the cost of having to buy a new car.
  4. Benefits
  5. Taking a car to a mechanic and replacing an engine with a used engine can cost between $1,000 to $2,000 for parts and labor.
  6. Solution
  7. Car owners interested in replacing their engines with new ones can expect to pay anywhere between $2,000 to $4,000.
  8. Speculation
  9. For those interested in doing the engine replacement themselves, purchasing specialized tools needed for the job is a cost to consider in addition to the price of a replacement engine.

02 Chrysler van 3.8 came in with blown head gasket and a check engine light for misfire no1 cyl. Installed new head gasket new rebuilt heads plugs wires started up still misfire 1 and now 4


erratic compression indicates a cam lobe problem or cam follower problem
with that many miles on it , the cam shaft will have wear on it but the rest of the motor will have considerable wear including possible ring problems on the numbered pistons
If the body is rust free consider a new -out of the box engine as a cheap plug to stop the repair waste of money

Have availiable a 98 villager with water in the oil suspect water pump falure / overheat and warped head blown head gasket engine runs smooth labor to replace head gasket waterpump and true heads cost...


$1000 plus the costs to do head gaskets, bearings (remember, antifreeze in the lubrication system means cam and crank bearings), you are talking about a rebuild, since it's out and apart you may as well do the rings too (150,000)...align boring, deck the block, heads...with the misc. items you will end up doing, you might be better off looking for a low mileage junkyard engine instead of going through that one.

The head gasket is out and maybe the head to how to fix it?


first thing is. why did the gasket blew? overheated, detonation or preignition, was the headgasket replaced before, does the car has alot of miles on the engine, did you squeeze everything out of the engine power wise? these are most common causes of a blown headgasket.

the first thing you need to do is find an OEM or reinforced gasket and replace it. if you never done it before take it to a mechanic or someone who is good at it. also check if the head and possibly block is warped ( if the surface where the gasket goes on is bent). if it is take it to a machine shop or replace it.

if you will do it yourself make sure to remove the head studs in correct sequence. and when putting it back together put it the correct sequence and use torque wrench to tighten the studs correctly. approximately 60-75 ftpounds.

1998 Caddilac DeVille overheated water in the oil blown head gasket. would it beworth fixing.


It depends if you really like the car or not how much it costs.and how many original miles your engine has on it now. It might be less expensive to find and put a good low mileage used motor in there instead vs. replacing the Head Gasket and rebuiling the Head.

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
