Hello, welcome. My name isXXXXX will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long for a response.


Yes what the mechanic is telling you is correct the engine has to be removed in order to replace the head gasket, the reason for this is that the rear head bolts can not be reached with the engine in the vehicle.

THANKS


DO YOU HAVE THE TIME ALLOCATED TO REPLACE THE GASKET. I HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT MOST OF THE COST IS DOWN TO LABOUR

Expert:  Mike Kelly replied 3 years ago.
Yes, the high cost of this job is the labor time, the parts are not that expensive. This is about a 10-12 hour job depending on where the work is performed. THANK YOU.
