    yeah...can you say price gouge? A complete top end gasket kit will cost ya about $85 here in southern california....

    Is it blowing white smoke out of the exhaust?? ....it it overheating??I don't understand the question i guess....bubbles in the radiator? I never knew that was a symptom of a blown head gasket....it is possible to just have air in there from improper maintenance, which could be another option vs. tearing it down and replaceing the gaskets....
