HEAD GASKET REPAIR

2001 Dodge Dakota • 12,000 miles

My Dakota would not start, but my mechanic got it running. My mechanic says it needs Head Gasket repair. He also said that while they were repairing the head gasket, I should have them put in a new motor. I have been reading about head gasket sealants. Is this vehicle worth the head gasket repair costs and motor replacement?

The fact of worth is up to you. Can you afford a new vehicle?

The head gaskets run around 1500-1800 depending on needed parts. Make sure they power flush the radiator which is a common reason for the head gasket failure.
