Answer 4
Doesn't matter if you are keeping or selling the vehicle. A different engine (used engine) will save you money. The cost of repairing a blown head gasket is about the same as replacing it with a used engine. You also dont have to worry about the head being warped or cracked. In my experience less drama for everyone. It's alot easier to R\R an engine than to fix the head. Add it up you will see. fst.freddie -
