Question Asked: What else should I check before having head gasket changed?
February 17, 2011, 12:40 PM
Guilty- I ignored "oil light" approx 4 months. From one day to next car began to overheat. I had the thermastat changed and that took care of problem for approx 2 weeks. Car will run approx 10-15min then it's in the red zone. I've been told I need to change the head gasket. Approx cost of repairs is between $1,000 to $1,200. Is there anything else I should have checked out before putting half the value of car back in it with this type of repair.. Thanks. ~Sylvia~
