    How much to repair a peugeot 307 headgasket? pls

    as above how much is the person roughly looking at getting this fixed for? its a 2002 plate and a 1.4 diesel.

    The problem is that the car is over heating so more then likely been told its the headgasket.

    Don't know how much this would be but if you live in the midlands I will recommend these guys.

    I have been using them for 11 years.
    They are less than half the price of the main dealer but know so much more than them.
    You can ring up a they fit you in within a couple of days which is better than the week you have to with the main dealer.
    You also get a free car to use while yours is been done or if you tell them you will be waiting they do yours first.
    I cant recommend them enough.

    Have you tried this site?

    I've a crazy idea! Phone a garage!

    I've just traded in my peugeot 106 on a 98 plate due to the same problem I was told I was looking at about £300 to £450.

    My head gasket is on it's way too. This is a week after my brakes went, and 3 days since my clutch went. I'm trading it in for a new car, I've had enough.

    The overheating could be totally unrelated, is there water in the oil (check dipstick) ?

    Even if it is the Headgasket I've always done these myself, would never give anyone £300/400 for changing something that costs a few pounds (The Headgasket) and you can do yourself in a few hours, even if you have to buy any 'special' tools or new parts (nuts/bolts etc....) it is still a lot cheaper and the benefit of knowing the job was done properly, just buy or borrow (Library) a Haynes Manual first to see what needs to be done, I used to do Ford ones in a couple of hours (including cursing and coffee breaks : )

    thanks for the help people and repped all.

    When you start having problems like this its best to get rid before things get more serious and costly as its only a matter of time.

    From previous experience witha rover the head gasket can be skimmed, rather than being replaced - which is a darn site cheaper.
    If you find this is the problem - ask if this is a possiability.
    Oh, and don't go on the advice of just one garage, go to a couple :thumbsup:
