This is a repair best left to a professional. If it is done wrong, you will get shrappnel in the cylinder, a hole too large to repair, loose spark plugs, etc.. $2500 seems very excessive though. What model and year do you have?

Overheating concours deville 1999, changed thermostat, new coolant, no leaks, water pump seems fine

Change thermostat new coolant , no leaks you have a head gasket, Your car is a reverse flow cooling system. This is one of GM biggest blunder they put out. You can try a radiator at least and make sure the cooling fan comes on when its suppose to.But there is no way around this the vehicle is sensitive to overheating and once that happens it over you will need a head gasket

a blown head gasket would not put metal shavings into the bottom. You will need to figure out where the metal is comming from but it sounds like the engine is "blown up" The first thing to do is to remove the head and see if the head gasket has blown. Even if the head gasket is blown it doesn't mean there isn't something else on the lower end thats not working . I have seen a timing chain that had worn into the metal and caused metal shavings to go into the bottom. If metal is going into the bottom the engine will need rebuilt or replaced or at least fix what ever is putting the metal into the bottom of the motor. Some shops will sell used motors that come from Japan and still work OK. A good mechanic can diagnose the condition of the motor and tell if it is worth fixing or not.

Blown head gasket

Is it overheating?, running? Blowing steam out the rear? , oil in the radiator? You need to do a compression check to find out which cylinder it is, if it is a v-6, if it is a 4 cyl, it won't matter,. A radiator shop can tell you and even quote you on the repair. About$1200, Ouch. I know. You can do it yourself, it is a job. Pull the head off, get it machined, new head bolts and gasket, put the hole thing back together, sounds easy. First remove everything in the way, like the car, then it is easy to work on. Good luck, hope this helps.

What are your changes of having of taking the blown head gasket to machine shop and repaired and putting back on motor

Cylinder head gaskets (the thin copper layer between the head and block) are not normally repairable, it is better to fit a new one.

If you mean getting the cylinder head itself repaired at the machine shop that is certainly possible but depends on the extent of the damage and wether it is iron or aluminium (particularly if it needs welding).

My car keeps over heating

You should never replace a head gasket if you are not 100% sure that it needs to be done. Your mechanic should do a compression test to check for a blown head gasket.

I would have the system back-flushed and refilled with new coolant mix. Also check the temperature switch and cooling fan(s) to make sure they are working. Also check to make sure the AC coil in front of the radiator is not plugged with dirt, bugs, etc. and blocking flow to the radiator.

How do i tell if the heads creaked on a 91 celica

a cracked head or blown head gasket,will cause your vehicle to have a miss in the cylander where the crack is or where the gasket is blown. you can also see coolant leaking if the gasket is blown. you can also see water in the oil,and white smoke come from the exhaust.
to tell for sure that the head is cracked,and not just a blown gasket is to remove the head. you will instantly see if the gasket is blown. if its not,then turn the head upside down and look at the small space between the valves,as this is where 99% of cracks occur.
