2011 X240 Head gasket.

Postby FrankB » Thu Apr 12, 2018 10:41 am

Sold my wagon to my son a few months ago, at 124,000 km ( very cheaply ! ) It is now in Sydney.
I have had it serviced religiously, and always looked after it, it has been a great vehicle.
It now has blown head gasket, or cracked head ( not sure which ) and he has been quoted around $4000 to repair.
Knowing the history of the car, I am inclined to encourage him to go ahead with fixing it. Is it worth doing ?

That's an awful lot for a head gasket?
I would get a couple more quotes

Hi,

My head gasket went at 66K (I was not smart enough to take notice of the symptoms and cooked the head too).

Got new head, gasket, timing kit and water pump and thermostat done for $2500 in Brisbane (early 2017).

So $4K is on the high side.

Cheers

Scott
