1,940

That will depend on several things. If the heads are not warped much and can be machined, the entire repair might be less than $400, depending on the cost of living in your area. If the heads are warped enough that one will require replacing, it could cost you around $700. If both heads need to be replaced, the repair will be more than that Saturn is worth. And I'm NOT exaggerating.
