Engine Mechanical problem
1998 Dodge Intrepid 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 185000 miles

Started the car Saturday night--it ran rough like it was missing. I shut it down. Smelled gas. Next day when I started it white smoke came out the tailpipe and I again smelled gas. Sounds like a head gasket to me. Any idea what it would cost to fix?
Range will do.

Same cost question to replace the fan that blow A/C and heat. Fan died the day before. Was a great car, but I'm asuming that its pretty much dead unless I can get this fixed for less than $1,200.

May not be head gasket, is there coolant in oil ie. Look like chocolate malt? Did engine overheat previously? Did engine continue to run rough at the A.M. Start up? If gaskets both is @ 8hr. Labor so at $90 per hr thats $720 +$200 for parts. Fluids etc.
As for fan @$ 60 fan + 1 hr labor.
Hope this helps
Let me know
Thanks for donate
