An estimated price including labor and parts for repairing cracked valve cover gaskets on your vehicle will be around $200, which is what we are hoping is wrong with it because that will be the cheapest. To replace the piston rings it will cost around $1,600., Obviously not worth that much. Replacing valve seals will be about the same as piston rings, around $1,200., Because these are both internal components and require a lot of hours of work. I suggest having the vehicle looked at by a reputable repair shop. If they diagnose it as being the valve cover gaskets then I would certainly go ahead and repair it. If they say something else then just ask them for an estimate and they should give you one for free. You can then let them know if you would like to go ahead with repairs or not.
