Im looking to get a 89 Grand Chrokee Limited as a winter car. Supposedly the headgasket needs to be replaced, and im wondering if this is something that i could do at home or if i need to bring it somewhere. If i need to bring it somewhere, how much would it run me? Just wondering if anyone else out there has had this sort of case and could help me out. Thanks!

In-line 6. Exhaust and intake are mated along the right side of the head. Loosing up the bolts and the exahust and intake drop together. Kinda weird. Never did one before, but watched a few ppl do it when I was an apprentice for Chrysler. Didn't look to hard to do.

The owner says that the engine overheats after 20 miles. He knows its the head gasket from what he has spoken to mechanics about. I've been quoted a price of $500 parts and labor. I'll be going to take a look at it today and hopefully we can get a clearer picture.
