So what should I expect as the price to get a blown head gasket fixed?

And would this be covered under an extended warranty?

I think that when i got my head gasket replaced it cost around 750 - 800$$

Most shop's charge $800 just for the LIM gasket, head gasket should be more.

Even the moast basic (powertrain only even) extended warrentys should cover it.

Its a 2000. I got the 5 year 75000 mi warranty and have about a month left and am at 73000 mi ROFL perfect timing if the warranty covers it :)

How do you know you have a blown head gasket?
I dont think ive ever heard of a 99+ having a blown head gasket. LIM gaskets are the most common with the 3400, so common its a shame.
A blown head gasket is BIG bucks to fix.

I paid $600 for my LIM gasket to get replaced by the dealer. The gaskets themselves are what? $100 or so a piece (I dont know for sure....Im guestimating).

I have an idea the dealership and ask how much it will will get a quick(er) answer than spamming up the forums =D

I'm not spamming up the forums, I'm simply asking the many other GA owners on here who might have had some experience in this what they have seen as a cost so I know if the quotes I got were BS or not.

Lucky for me though the extended warranty hadn't expired yet and it covers it so I just have to live without my car for a bit whileit gets fixed.

yeah man i am guessing warranty should cover it. I had my lim fixed with my extended waaranty i bought that i got with the car when i bought it a few months ago. I dunno what kind of warranty plan you have, i have the Gm majorguard one. ANyways good luck, call the dealership and see if your warranty covers it. Oh and the lim took em a few hours to fix (maybe half a day, i dropped it off before 7 am and they were done by 1 pm. ) i dunno if the head gasket takes longer
