My MB has 141,000 miles on it and the head gasket is leaking. Oil is in the coolant, so it needs to be replaced ASAP. Any ideas on what I should expect to pay to have the work done?

Thanks!

Just doing the head gasket is a fools game at that mileage. Have the head done (by someone who specialized in MB), change the timing chain/tensioner and guide rails, change the fan bearing braket, belt tensioner and tensioner damper.
If the water pump hasn't been changed do that as well. Last time I had someone in for all that work it came to around 3K.

I paid about $900 for mine which is a very good deal. I just got my car back last week. But it took two months!!

Final price came to $844.91, so I thought that was a very fair deal.

Front shocks and front flex disc are next on the repair list...
