I have a 2003 Dodge Durango, I blew a gasket & my mechanic is recommending that I replace the entire engine. How much do you think this will cost? & Do you think it would be worth it?

Head gasket replacement would run around $1000-1500 depending on the garage and location. How is the rest of your engine, if it's in fine shape, there is no need to replace the entire engine. How much is he quoting you for that and labor?

He said that this was just judging by the look of it. He said it would cost me about $400 to remove the engine then it would cost me 2k-4k for the rebuild and the labor.

If it was me I would rebuild the engine since it is open then you are good for many year´s if it is done well. I know that people with the 4,7 and the 5,9 have gotten 300k+ miles out of their engine´s with out a rebuild but that is with a very good maintenance.

head gaskets are known for going in the newer dodge engines id just replace the gasket if all else is good
