REPAIR QUESTION ESTIMATED REPAIR COSTS

2001 SAAB 9-3

Engine Mechanical problem
2001 Saab 9-3 repair Question 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 71000 miles

I noticed oil on the garage floor. Took the car in to be checked and they are indicating that the leak is from the engine and that I need an engine overhaul - new head gasket and the like.

Can you give me an estimate of the cost?

Thanks!

Ok, check this saab online site for prices on your parts need, [ the saabsite. Com] input your correct vehicle year & type then u will need a cyl head gasket & 10 head bolts , plus turbo flange gasket, valve cover gasket & coolant u can buy anywhere, after that cost for R& R head can be around $300-600 dollars pending, time for job will take around 2 hours with a cold engine. But note book labour is about 6-8 hours dont quote me on that, good luck also u may want to replace your oil pressure switch while u r there, oil leak from the head is common if the vehicle never had a gasket replacement before.
