2000 Ford Taurus Question: head gasket repair

How much to repair for a blown head gasket. I have a 2000 Ford Taurus and my head gasket has blown causing my car not to start. I would like to know what kind of shops would fix this problem for me? -
Answer 1
Are you certain it is a head gasket failure? It is not entirely common with the 3.0L V6 in a Taurus. Especially the 12 Valve OHV version. I recommend contacting a local shop and making a relationship with them, where they can give you a (second) opinion on the engine issue. Here is a link to some local shops... http://repairpal.com/directory?address=19026&car_brand_names=Ford My thinking is that if you have a cylinder head leak on this car that there may be additional internal engine issues. Good luck. -
