Question: Where do I find a mechanic to replace a blown head gasket for the estimate I got here?

I did an estimate on this website to replace my blown head gasket and parts and labor (fluids excluded) was $845, yet when I made a couple of calls, I was told it would be at least $1500 and one guy even told me it could be $8000!!!??

So how do I find a mechanic to do it for $845?

You should ask the shops how they came up with their estimate.

It is possible you may have looked up the incorrect engine size but the prices shouldn't be that far off.. I would also say the prices that are quoted to you sounds like the price for installing a manufactured head or engine assembly, so you really need to see where they came up with their estimate.

Just so you know, our website should be used mostly as a guide. It really is impossible to get an accurate estimate on some work as parts and labor rates vary from place to place.

It goes without saying that these pieces wear out, but they do so slowly, meaning you may not notice they need attention until ...
