Engine Mechanical problem
1999 Dodge Ram 6 cyl Automatic 215000 miles
My van leaked water and it was not coming from the radiator. A mechanic (friend of a friend) found that the waterpump was bad. He replaced it and started the van. White smoke poured from the exhaust. He checked the spark plugs and found water on them and in the area he pulled the plugs from. He said I needed a head gasket. I gave him money to buy it and he vanished with my money. How much does it cost to repair a head gasket? The van does not run and I don't want to take it to a shop if I can't pay for the repairs. I think the other mechanic damaged one of my spark plug wires also when he removed it.
have the same problem?
