A straight head gasket replacement will be in the neighborhood of $2000. Unfortunately, what the technician will probably find is a stripped thread or broken head bolt, requiring possibly much more labor, and may perhaps even end up with a cracked block, so be prepared for the possibility of engine replacement. Used engine replacement will probably cost you around $5000, parts and labor.
