Is it worth buying a new head gasket?
Is it worth fixing a head gasket ? Both head gaskets in my Subaru 2009 impreza are leaking along with with the oil pan. I’ve had my car for a while everything else works perfectly fine 100% on my car. My car only has 140,000 miles on it. Just wondering if it’s worth fixing for $3,600 dollars. Any advice ?? And yes it was inspected by Subaru.

it's only worth it if you can do the job yourself

Subaru's are known for head gasket problems. $1200 is an average price to fix the problem.Source(s): Mitsubishi Master Tech

Are you willing to put $3600 into a vehicle that is only worth $ 4000-4500?

Like loss of power? Water in the oil until the bearings seize? Air pollution? Spots where you park? Not passing a state inspection? Then bad gaskets are for you.

Only if the old one is blown.
And then it depends on the overall condition of the vehicle with the blown head gasket, if there are lots of other faults then no.
