Is your car an SC1 or an SC2 model? The reason I ask is because a head gasket for the SC2 is about $150 while the head gasket for the SC1 is about $70. Depending on what shop you go to, the labor rate can run anywhere from $85 an hour to $150 an hour. That should answer your question.

I am finding oil in the radiator.


This almost always means a bad head gasket or a cracked head/block, unless you are a mechanic this isn't something you are going to be able to fix yourself and is likely more costly to repair than the car is worth.

Depending on where you live can vary in price, but $700 would be a starting price. The labor involved with that is the problem.

I have a 1997 Saturn SC2, it has an oil leak and is smoking bad


The smoke sounds like its burning off any oil accumulating in the exhaust, and only goes down to the point where the crankshaft stops splashing in the oilpan.

Headgasket is out of this 1997 saturn sc2 1.9 liter


I have changed a head gasket on a saturn 1.9 L engine, no special tools are required. Take your time and be patient. do not over tighten the headbolts and do not forget to torque them to the correct specs. after about a week of driving check everything you tightened to uinsure they remained tight. all should be well when the project is complete. Oh one more thing. a mechanic dropped a socket into a friends engine and blew the motor. be very careful that all of your tools are acounted for before starting the engine
