I am looking at buying a 96 ES w/3.5. I have heard these engines usually have the head gaskets go out. It has 113,000 on the engine.Does anyone have any knowledge about this and how much should it cost to have new gaskets installed??One dealer said about 800 is this about right? Thanks for any help...

This should be in the 1st gen forums, 93-97 were 1st gen's, 98+ are 2nd gens.

my head gasget blew, but that is because the water pump went first.. it overheated on the hiway, and proceeded to blow the gasget. so if you do get it, do a timing belt, timing belt tensioner, waterpump replace. do it.
