Both sides. It has low compression in cylinders 5 and 7, air check shows leakage past the valves

Not head gaskets but burned valves.
Anyway, valve job is 400, 200 per side and you need to do both as to not end up with lopsided compression.
Labor is 9 hours. Gaskets are about 90
oil change, coolant flush and thermostat need changing too.
