If you do the work yourself, you can save some money. Replacing a headgasket involves taking the top end of the engine off and possible machining of the head. The gasket is cheap, it's the labor that will be expensive.

If its the head gasket and it isn't too bad you can try a product called Blue Devil. It's about $60 and you absolutely have to follow the instructions to the letter. I've had luck with it in the past on engines with aluminum heads. I've heard that iron heads don't take to it so well.
