Thank you for your attention to the rating requirement.

there is no way to fix a head gasket without replacing it. all of the supposed "quick fix" methods do not work and will in fact cause other issues in your cooling system.


the cost to replace your head gasket will be approximately $300 in parts and about 12 hours of labor at the shop rate (anywhere form $100 to $250 an hour based on where you live).

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
