That will depend on what conditions existed when the belt broke. The belt should cost somewhere around $60 a Head gasket will cost somewhere around $30 and you have a choice of either having the head checked or rebuilt from the get go. Most shops that do this work will Pressure check it for about $20 but if it needs to be repaired it will run around $400 depending on how much the valves, valve seats and labor cost is in your area for doing this type of work. If you feel you can cut Valve seats on your own and have a valve spring compressor you can do the valve job yourself if you need one in most cases a lot cheaper than having someone else do the work but the amount you save is going to depend on if you have the knowledge and tools to do the work, and how much the valves cost each. The intake and exhaust valves are different and vary in price. I've seen them range from $19 to $26 a valve.

Just had my 120000 service done on a XC90 which I just purchased. It was running just fine and then started to consume oil like crazy. Took it back to mechanic and he said the turbo is going out. No...

There is the possibility,the turbo was going out and the previous owner had thicker oil with oil treatment additive in the engine,hiding the turbo seal problem.Did your service include an oil and filter change? Your new regular (proper viscosity) oil may now be showing the leaky turbo seal.Did you have a oil change done at your service?Once you have the seal/turbo rebuilt,may sure to always idle the engine a minute before shut off after fast driving.This will increase the life of the turbo seals.

I am unable to replace my timing belt on my 2001 PT Cruiser I have 120,000 miles on my car.....Can it make it to 122,000??? I am trying to get the money together as we speak........Do you know???

some people dont bother to change the belt at all(NOT RECCOMMENDED) so, as long as you dont redline it in every gear,it could go on for a lot longer(i hope...)
