It depends on the engine size, number of valves in the head, and difficulty of head removal. Typical repair procedure is to remove the head, replace all the valves and valve seals. This ensures the best and most dependable repair. I would guess it will run you anywhere between $600.00-$750.00 for a basic 4 cylinder engine; higher performance 4 cylinder engines will cost more. V-6 & V-8 engines usally run higher because they have 2 heads and both need to be done. Ballpark figure $600.00-$1000.00 or more.
