Jeep Cherokee 2001, just under 72000 mi, V6
Just last week my car overheated and began to smoke. I took it to the local gas station. The mechanic told me that I may have blown the cylinder head gasket. He removed the thermostat to flush the system, checked the radiator flow, and refilled the antifreeze. When I picked it up he told me to watch the meter and if it red lined again to take it to the local repair shop and they would have to replace the head gasket.
As I drove off, I was taking it to go run an errand and the meter redlined and then dropped off after a minute or two, this repeated 2 more times in a 10 min driving period.
What is a good price for the repair job that I am going to need?
