About 2 months ago I took my 2002 Saturn SL1 (10200 miles) for an oil change. The mechanic informed me that there was some oil in the coolant. I checked the coolant today and it appears to be congealing with what looks like oil. The mechanic in question told me that the Head Gasket needed replacing whic is fine however he qouted me that it would cost $2500. Is this quote accurate? Is it really that much for a small engine vehicle?

Thanks very much.

Do you
have the same problem?

Hey Mike,
Oil in the coolant and vica versa looks a lot like a chocolate milkshake. You will normaly see it on the cap of the oil fill.

Prices vary depending on location. The best advice is to get estimates from reliable shops. Read the link entitled "Avoid Car Repair Rip Off" located in the blue box to the left of this post.

Good luck and let us know. :)
