Well it happened. The bulletproof 3.5 just blew a head gasket. Still runs smooth but gets hot after about 5 min of running and yup the dreaded *mix* of coolant/oil in the oil pan. Just happed out of the blue. I do not have the time to fix myself as I have way to many irons in the fire right now. Including a new bathroom remodel I am in the middle of, my daughters wedding that's happening in December, etc.
Anyone in the Columbus area know of a good/fair/reliable mechanic I can turn to, to get this job done?? I am also curious if anyone else has gone through this and what is a ballpark charge?? Or is it even worth it and maybe just look for a used engine??
