Car Information:
Pontiac Montana
Year: 2003
Engine Size: Not Sure
Trans: Automatic

Issue / Question:
My son is considering buying a 2003 Montana that needs a head gasket repair/replacement. He says it looks very clean and well-maintained, but I’m wondering whether the head gasket repair that is needed indicates expensive problems that will need to be considered or addressed.

Unless severely overheated, the head gaskets are most likely fine. Most likely, the current owners have had the vehicle incorrectly diagnosed. To do a complete value job and head gasket replacement could easily run over $2,000. An intake gasket replacement with a minor engine tune is less than $1,000.
