Indy shop wants to charge $22 for gasket. $495 total to repair and do oil change.
Sounds way too much if I can do it myself. Any suggestions? Thanks
It will depend how much you know your car. Gasket costed me $20 here in Oz and I did it myself. Took me a whole day and it can be very frustrating with no space. You will need some tools such as car jack stands, socket set etc. I took some pictures, not all, and if you want I can try to write up what I did on my '04 M54 engine.
