Hey Ed==It is different in different parts of the country. I would call SEVERAL local shops and dealerships and see what they say. Goodluck Joe
$1700. in NYC
I once got an estimate for $1200 in Dallas Tx
Its probably cheaper to get it replaced at a junk yard
The gasket is very inexpensive at around 2 dollars. I believe it is about a one hour job by book hours. The price should be around 75-100 dollars.
you should only change the gasket if you have to take the valve cover off....... you should only change the gasket if you have to take the valve cover off.......
Unless the housing is damaged, there is no reason to replace it. Just replace the gasket.
How much should it cost to replace a blown head gasket for a 197 BMW 528I
The 2003 Chevy Malibu does not have a timing belt. It has a chain which should last the life of the engine.
Replace the head gasket for sure. That is assuming you did not continue to drive the vehicle until you destroyed the engine internally.
you mean a valve cover gasket i think
YES! Replace the head gasket or destroy the engine if you continue to drive it.
should you drain oil in the car if the head gasket is blow
They should, but what the actual law on this is will vary in accordance with where you are.
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.
For sure, replace ALL the gaskets involved. When you purchase, ask for a head gasket set and you will get all the gaskets that are used.
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.
Gasket should be included with new oil filter
You should be able to get the sender separately at the dealer.You should be able to get the sender separately at the dealer.
Not necessarily, unless you think they are leaking.
on my 2000 Malibu with the 3100 or 3.1 it cost me a little over $700 bucks..that's with anti freeze flush and fill, new thermostadt, the good gasket set (fel pro)not the cheap one and oil and filter..
One hour of labor (~$75) + the gasket (~$15-25).
It should about 1 hour of labor (~$70) + plus gasket (~$10-25).
you should never use a sealant on a head gasket as that is only a temporary fix in an emergency situation. The only permanent fix is to replace the gasket.
head gasket blown. reface the cylinder head and replace gasket. that should fix the problem
No,but with instructions you should be able to do this
Chevy Malibu AnswerYou can, but a lot of patience and mechanical inclination is necessary, and a good repair guide wouldn't hurt either. The gasket shouldn't cost more than $50-60, but taking the manifold off to replace the gasket could take upwards of 6-8 hours, IF you have a fair idea of what you're doing.Intake gasket replacements generally run between $600-900.That is about right. I have performed several and in the process of another gasket job now on 2000 Malibu. It is quite common on the 3.1 & 3.4 liter V6 lower intake gaskets to break right in the corner of the water jacket section.If you have not performed anything remotely close, I would not recommend it simply for the fact that the gaskets are located behind the pushrods. That means you have to remove them and reset the preloads on each pushrod in the lifter.Also to do the job properly, you should replace both the upper/lower gaskets, valve cover gaskets, thermostat and multiple seals especially the tube going into the thermostat housing from the rear.
I have a 2007 ford escape, replaced a valve cover gasket in August 2012, noticed that i have a small oil leak around the gasket.
