Your used car dealer is balking because that job is $1K, which requires you to remove the transmission. All the other gaskets you might be able to do yourself. I can find you some DIY's, but if your not mechanically inclined, your mechanic will charge you a few hundred each to do the other ones, maybe give you a break if you do them all at one time. The gaskets aren't the cost factor, it's the labor removing parts to get to them.

If it has a warranty tell then you want it fixed now, don't let them try to put you off, make them fix all of the problems not just the ones they want to fix, time is not your friend here.
