My 1999 plymouth was over heating and ended up dying. We towed it to a local mechanic who told us the head gasket was possibly blown, but he also said he didn't really work on engines and we may need an engine. We have since decided to purchase a new van, but our teen daughter needs a car. We are thinking of seeing if we can fix it so that she has something to drive until she can afford something she wants. Do you have any idea what kind of cost we would be looking at to fix this. We don't want to spend a lot of money because the van is not worth much.

Well not sure why a local mechanic wouldn't know how to work on engines. But anyway. If the engine overheated then most likely the cylinder head gasket and/or the cylinder head itself has cracked and failed. Will cost approx. $350 - $400 in labor fees to remove the cylinder head for repair.
