Funny you post this now, I just had mine replaced last week with the valve cover gasket, after all the same symptoms, and have seen this pop up here more recently so maybe it is a common problem with age. I cost me about $1,000 at a indy shop for both repairs. So if a indy shop quoted you $330 it might be realistic. The parts were cheap for both repairs, but there were about 7 or 8 hours in labor, that is where the cost was. So if you are mechanically inclined you can probably do it yourself and save money, but if you just have the one issue, and can get it fixed for $330, that might be easier.
