Head?

Ok ppl, I need some advice, I had to get a new radiator, timing chain kit. Well when the mechanic got them in he said he started it up and it shot water every where, he said I could have a cracked or warped head, so, how much is a replacement?

i'm going to guess that to have them install it + the part its going to be a pretty penny. what engine do you have a 2.5 or 4?
the 4.0L the head will run you $620 + shipping

you can get a used 2.5 for 500 or less but its not cheap for the install unless you diy. personally id tear the 2.5 down and see if its the head or just the head gasket. the head gasket is a lot cheaper part but the labor will be about the same, unless you diy which is relatively simple.
