Cadillac headgaskets?

December 28th, 2010 · No Comments

How much roughly would it cost if I took my 1999 Cadillac Seville to the dealer to get a new waterpump, headgaskets, and 4 cams. I took it to a friend to get the work done and hes charging around 3,500 and I was wondering if thats a lot?

- If it needs head gaskets get a used or new engine. Tried puting head gaskets in a northstar once and it did not go well. All the head bolt threads were bad in the block. The thread repair kit alone was gunna be another 800 bucks. I just got a used engine and threw the old one away.
- Seems steep, but that is a lot of work on a Caddy. I would take it to at least three different people and get estimates. I have done this work on four cylinder engines and I have paid from 300.00 to 700.00 on parts and the rest of the labor I did myself which was three easy days of work.
