2004 Bentley Continental GT - blown head gasket
I purchased a 2004 Bentley Continental GT sight unseen and after paying $1,000 for diagnostics, the repair shop came back that I had a blown head gasket and needed an entirely new engine for 17K! This was quite a shock for me!
First, does a blown head gasket require a completely new engine? If so, $17K with labor seems quite excessive to me especially when I see engines online for $6 - $8k. Does this sound correct? I'm thinking about getting a second opinion.
Any and all advice is appreciated!
