My Buick Century (1999) had a coolant leak which was diagnosed as the head gasket. The leak was external (as far as I could tell, they was no smoke out of the exhaust). The repair facility wants to replace many items along with the head gasket to assure total satisfaction with the job. The cost is $1900. If the leak is external, do they need to replace spark plugs, pump, alternator.
I also asked them if they checked for a manifold leak and they triple checked and it is was no.
In any case, what is the minimum I should do to have a faithful vehicle?
have the same problem?
