1994 Chrysler LeBaron Question: Head Gasket replacement

I received an estimate of 500-850 for a head gasket job on our 1994 Chrysler Lebaron, is that estimate to replace both head gaskets or one? -
Answer 1
remember, an estimate is only an estimate, not an invoice. when you disassemble a motor, there are so many other things you can find that will add to the cost, such as a cracked head. after the repair, you still need to find the reason the head gasket blew. without finding that, the same thing can occur again. I believe 800 is a starting point and could add up very quickly. Roy -

The cost of the repair will cost more than the car is worth. -
