I have a 97 Civic that needs a head gasket replacement, and after attempting the job myself, I wanted to get a quote to see how much the job would cost to complete. The old gasket was definitely bad - I had heating / cooling problems, a radiator hose rupture under exaust gas pressure, and a mechanic confirm it wasn't holding pressure. I pulled and machined the head, then reassembled the engine with new gaskets, timing belt, and water pump. The problem - the new gasket will not seal, and I don't want to repeat all that work. So, assuming the parts are good - what would be an estimate to do a full diassembly, recheck the head and block, and reassembly? How much would it be for me to do the diassembly, then bring it to you? Thanks!!

when driving on rough road

The fan motor switch (off thru 4) only works on 4, but I can see how to get thru the dash to access the switch to replace. Or other ideas on the problem?

this car was running rather good only that you need to put oil when you drive for like 20 miles, only when my son drove to his work which is 34.4 miles from where we live and i guess he didn't check or put oil before he drove the 34.4 miles back home, he said that about 5 miles before he reached our house the car was showing sign of being drained out the head lights became dim, when he steps on the gas pedal to speed up it was like it went slow then it is like its oxygen opened up and moved a little faster, but then still driving it around it would start up and the engine sounds like it is congested and the exhaust has the strong smell of gasoline, and then now it is choking when you are taking of and slow up a small hill and on a stop lite, when we step on the gas pedal because it sounds and feels like it is gonna die out, you smell that strong gasoline mixed with exhaust smell

My car has been overheating. I took it in a week ago. They changed the radiator cap and refilled the coolant. Now, the engine is overheating again. They think that I might be the head gasket. Is this a very expensive fix? Can it be anything else?

I heard a squealing noise for two days whenever I drove my 1990 Honda civic. Engine light(yellow) kept coming on. Then car just shut down. Gas pedal had no pressure at all. I smelled burning and saw light smoke on left side of engine when I lifted the hood. Ways the problem?

I am going to need a new engine for my 2000 Civic Ex. Does anyone have any idea on how much that is going to cost me? I think that I have a friend of the family who is able to put it in for me. So that should save me labor costs.

im looking at a 1998 honda civic its automatic has 136,000 miles and has a reconstructed title they are asking 2,800 what is a good price to pay for this?

Does anyone have free instructions for replacing a power steering rack boot (driver's side)?

My temp gage goes up and down like a rollercoaster. One minute its redlined in Hot, I pull over to look at it and its dropped back down to C. New thermostate made no difference.Water seems to circulate through the radiator, sometimes it looks like its not. My motor was rebuilt 15,000 miles ago.

Blew head gasket, coils melted inot spark plug tube, thermostat, possibly valve cover, ignition coils, radiator needs to be replaced. I severely overheated my vehicle by not stopping when the check engine light came on.
I have been quoted 2800.00 for the job possibly as high as 3200. My car has 167,000 miles on it 2004 but it is paid for. Does this sound like a reasonable estimate and should I bother (you think?) The mechanic is pretty decent but they may be ripping me off a little as the engine would probably cost around 350. The replacement engine I am told is 67,000 miles and a 6 month warranty.
