    To replace the head gaskets on 2WD B4000 is about is about an 8 to 8.5 hour job. Parts and cylinder head inspection and repairs would depend on what is needed. Shops charge about $80 to pressure check the heads for cracks and $65 to machine the cylinder heads flat if needed.

    The estimate you receive in the RepairPrice Estimator doesn't include the machine shop fees.
