Question type: Maintenance & Repair

If I blew a head gasket, how likely is it that
the engine is blown?!? Don't wanna put
money into it if it's not worth it. Love this
car tho. How would I tell??

A head gasket does not necessarily mean a new engine. It won't be cheap but if the car is otherwise in good shape and the engine is not using oil I would go ahead and fix it.

it does mean major surgery- get an estimate from somebody good, don't cheap out, and see if it's worth it to you-
