I need to replace the engine valves in my car for about two months but haven't been able to due to financial restraint. The engine valves need to be replaced because oil is leaking.
Now I get a message in my car stating oil pressure low - stop engine now. I got that message two days ago and haven't drove my car since. I plan on towing it to the nearest service center after getting my tax refund check. With the information I've provided do you know around how money I'm going to be spending on repairs. Thanks!

Have you checked the oil? You must be speaking of cam(valve) covers that are leaking. I would speculate around 3-4 hours of flat rate labor at an average of $100 per hour. Parts should not be that expensive, 2 cover gaskets and don't let the shop forget the bolt o-rings(16). Hopefully under $100 for parts. I would figure in the neighborhood of 500 bucks.
