have a 2005 taurus check charging system and batt light keeps coming on have changed…
How much would a mechanic charge to replace head gaskets on this car?
Much would depend on the engine as it may be DOHC (Double Over Head Cam) or not.
Around $1600 this includes gaskets, coolant, oil, cleaner, misc and labor.
The gasket set is under $100 plus mechanic mark up on parts = $150 – $200
