Was performed? if you had it done, you already know what the cost was ? right? The cost depends on what it takes to make it right, Head work, gaskets, oil, coolant, thermostat, misc parts. maybe $1000 , plus timing belt, plus what made the head gasket bad in the first place? overheated?

What's labor and cost am I looking at with a blown

It's difficult to give you an exact cost. I say this because every shop has a different labor rate per hour. Also the cost of parts are different depending on your location. About the only way I can help is to let you know what the labor times should be. According to my labor guide the time it should take to replace the head gasket is 4.3 hours. If you have power steering you need to add .4 more (total 4.7). So depending on the hourly rate of the shop will depend on that expence. Parts you are going to need is a cylinder head gasket set, antifreeze, and you will at least have to have the head resurfaced which is a machine shop charge. I would suggest that since it is at the machine shop that they should go on and have a valve job done including new valve stem seals (which by the way come in the head gasket set). I would suggest the valve job since you will be going to all the expence already and the cylinder head is off also the age/miles of an older car I can't see the valve job being more than 150 dollars. One other thing is that they will need to remove your timing belt and would suggest you having them put a new one on since the old one is off. The only additional cost's for that should be .8 hours in labor and the cost of the timing belt. There will also be shop material fees such as cleaners and sealant and that changes from shop to shop. I hope I have been able to give you an idea as to what you are looking at and if you are going to go to the expence to do it, you should go ahead and do that extra stuff I mentioned (valve job, timing belt). I know now days money can be an issue but if at all possible financially it will save you headaches in the future.

I had 90000 service performed. At 98000 miles I hear a gurgling sound, like the system needs to be burped. Car seemed to be driving normally otherwise. Not overheating. I bring it to the dealer to look it...

Well you tax is cheap thats for sure ,its 17% here in spain .Try bleeding the cooling system a bit and see if that cures it ,could just be an air lock
