I need some good advice on weather to do a head gasket repair myself or spend a ton of money at some mechanic shop. Its a 2000 Wrangler with 93,000 miles. I already had it in to a Jeep dealer who told me the reason I was loosing coolant was because the seams were breaking on the radiator. So $500 dollars later I have a new radiator and was still loosing coolant. I checked the oil and it was way up on the stick but not green.....just watery looking. They told me the would be able to tell me if it was just the head gasket or a cracked head after they tear it down. I am no mechanic but am fairly confident I could do this myself with the proper repair manual and some assistance from friends. Any advice out their???????
