SEEPING HEAD GASKET

1990 Acura Legend • 6 cylinder 2WD Automatic • 126,000 miles

1990 Acura Legend mileage: 126,000. I've recently been told my Acura has a "seeping head gasket." Is this something I should have fixed quickly or will it be ok for a while? Any estimates on repair? I live in Connecticut.

It may be okay for a while if it is just seeping. Check coolant and oil levels often. You may want to consider an engine overhaul with 126,000 miles. Head gasket replacement would cost will vary

I would replace ASAP, if it leaks into combustion chamber you could hydraulic the engine, which would render it useles.
