I had my water pump go in October and the car overheated. The head gasket was fine until now and it's at the shop. I'm thinking that when it overheated the head gasket was weakened and took this long to fail.

My question is what else should I have the dealer do with the head off? The car has 100k mi and hasn't had a major service since 75k.

Also what should I expect to pay? The dealer is talking in the $1400 range but I haven't got a firm quote yet.

TIA

IN THIS CASE I WILL HAVE DEALER OR SHOP TO REPLACE YOUR ENGINE TIMING CHAIN & TENSIONER (TIMIGN CHAIN & TNSIONER DUE FOR 100K) AND YOU WILL SAVE SOME LABOR HAVE IT DONE AT THIS TIME. ALSO MAKE SURE HAVE DEALER INSPECT YOUR ENGINE VALVE GUIDES & VALVE STEM SEALS,RERPLACE THEN IF NESS,THAT WILL SAVE YOU SOME MONEY HAVE DONE AT ONE OPERATION. GOOD LOCK TO YOU

Depending on the year, the oil spray nozzel update might apply...Ask your dealer. If your car is pre '87 or '88 (I can't really remember), it is in the category.
