Depending on who you get it's about a 6 hour job to do it right and you want to replace the head bolts and timing belt as you do it...Gasket kit on eBay-$46, timing belt and tensioner $56, and bolts around $50 at Advance Auto Parts....the belt and tensioner is $89 at Advance and the gaskets are almost $200 so go with eBay...I actually did mine last week...The engine mount is the worst part of the job if you have air tools...The job at a dealer will run about $400-800 depending for labor and then the parts another $500 or more....local garage, about $550 for parts and labor, at least here in KY.

Blown head gasket

Well it would really depend on the condition of your engine.
It would take more labor to repair your engine than it would to just replace it. But unless the engine is very damaged it should be cheaper to have your engine fixed. And replacing the head gasket and having the head repaired should be under the price you were given. A head gasket set for a 4 cyl engine is around $100 wholesale.
I would call around and check with other shops next.

Running hot, low on coolant

chances are you have a head gasket leak, the top of the engine will need dismantling, the head may need skimming on a milling machine, the radiator, thermostat & water pump should all be replaced at the same time as a premature failure of one such as the head usually means the imminent failure of the others, everything apart from the head can be done at home by even a novice mechanic with a Chilton's manual to save on cost & a replacement head gasket done by a decent garage should cost between 500 - 700 bucks, but call around to get the best price.

What is cost to replace valve cover gasket on 2002 dodge neon?

To replace the valve cover gasket shouldn't be that expensive. Although those cars are known for blown head gaskets, so I would have them look carefully at the back of the engine for an oil leak. If it is leaking oil out of the head, it is only a matter of time before the head gasket will be pushing anti-freeze. Please rate my answer so I get points for it.

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

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

Well i want to buy this car. but The only issue with it is the head gasket is popped or the radiator needs replaced so the car over-heats after about 5 miles ? can i repair it ? how much you think it will...

First you need to determine if it's the head gasket or the radiator, as the cost and labor involved is very different. Is the oil or antifreeze contaminated? If so, most likely its the head gasket. Keep in mind also that if the head gasket failed and the car overheated, the cylinder head may be warped or even cracked. After removing the head, take it to a machine shop and have it checked. As far as cost goes, it depends on whether you do it or not. A head gasket set will probably run you around 50 - 75 dollars, and figure 150 - 200 for the machine shop to check it. These are very round figures, and you might want to call a couple of parts stores to get prices for the gasket set, and call a machine shop and ask them what they're charging to clean and inspect an overheated head.
