    The fuel pump is likely in the four hundred to seven hundred dollar range. Issues from corrosion of the fuel lines, and whether you need to do the entire pump assembly or just the pump will impact the cost. As far as needing a head-gasket you must plan on sending the heads to a machine shop to have them tested and potentially resurfaced at the same time. Expect to be in the $1500 range for that, and it could be higher depending on historical service habits and the machine shop costs.
