Thank you for your replies.
I'm just curious, when the dealership mechanic tested my car before he worked on the head gasket, would he not have been able to determine if there was a problem with either the head, the head gasket, or the block?
And secondly, when he replaced the head gasket and noticed nothing really wrong with it, should he not have told me at that time that perhaps the problem was in the head or the block before putting the car back together?
Since I was charged $1200.00 for the head gasket job, I feel really cheated cause now the mechanic is claiming that because it could be head or block problem, they will have to charge me more for it.
Is this fair?
Worse case scenerio, I'm thinking of taking my car to North American engine and transmission installations and replacing my engine for about $2500 from Japan low mileage with 6 mo warranty or have my engine replaced with a rebuilt engine for $3500 with a 3 yr or 60,000 km warranty. What do you think?
