Replacing the head gasket on an SL model Saturn is a fairly simply operation, requiring few tools beyond your basic, with the exception of a torque wrench, which can usually be rented or "checked out" from an Autozone or the like. So the question becomes: Are you doing it yourself? If so, it'll run you about 30 bucks (new gasket, scraper, etc), as for the alternative, I've no idea, since I did mine myself.

about 1200.00 with a year warranty and they do hone the head to assure proper fit.

Be sure head is pressure tested before you reinstall it SOHC 1.9 is known for cracking head.

The price to replace a blown head gasket on a Chrysler Sebring V6 should be around $1,000.00. The price can vary depending on where you have the repairs made or if you replace it yourself.

You cannot and should not buy a used head gasket. If you have a blown head gasket you replace it with a new gasket. The gasket will cost very little. The labor to replace the gasket is where the cost is. Expect to pay from $500 to $1,000. This is a major repair that takes time.

Cost of gasket + cost of labor = your answer...call your local shop and ask.

There is no way of knowing until the engine is taken apart and checked. What you would hope to be a blown head gasket may turn out to be a cracked head(s) and that would bring the cost up alot.

It will cost about 1000 dollars to about 1500 dollars to repair a blown head gasket depending on the type of vehicle you own. This can also vary by location and damage done to the vehicle.

I don't know how much it "should" cost, but I just got an estimate for $1200 to do mine. Practically the value of the car...

User Avatar

Depends on make, model, year, and engine size. At a minimum it will cost $500.

User Avatar

About $1200 at a shop. The gasket kit is about $160 if you can do it yourself.

User Avatar

I'm assuming it is a head gasket? The part only costs about $30 but there is a good amount of labor involved (7 to 9 hours). If you are taking it into a shop it can cost you anywhere from $700 to $1200. You should decide if the car is worth it or not.
