How Much Does A Volvo Head Gasket Replacement Cost?
The head gasket on your Volvo provides the seal between the cylinder head and engine block, which allows the engine to build up the correct amount of compression, while also allowing coolant and oil to flow through to the top of the engine.
If the head gasket fails, or ‘blows out’ the coolant and oil can mix, as well as allowing coolant to enter the combustion chamber – all bad things for the health of your Volvo, especially if you keep driving!
The average price of a head gasket replacement starts around $1200 and can increase to $3000+ depending on any other damage and other work required.
