Why is Head Gasket Replacement So Expensive?

The head gasket is a seal between the engine block and the cylinder head, responsible for ensuring fuel stays the combustion chamber, oil stays where the oil should be and coolant stays where the coolant should be. When this fails, engine oil and coolant begin to mix - meaning neither one will perform as well as it should. Since it's located so deep in the engine, we'll need to disassemble your engine entirely, and ensure the cylinder head and block are undamaged and still meet flush together. This can be time-consuming and pricey, especially since we'll want to replace other components like worn-out belts or old filters while the engine is taken apart. The good news? Head gasket replacement is common, and we'll get a better look at the condition of your engine than anyone has had since your Subaru was assembled. Once we're done, you'll have a totally refurbished engine ready to go up to another 100,000 miles with regular oil changes and inspections!
