Just spent 4k on a Malibu with 91k miles on it.. 2.4 motor blown head gasket i think.. is it worth fixing?
Tyler34, and they're in the same general area.Welcome!
I'm guessing this is an as-is situation with no 90-day warranty? You can probably get that done for 1000-1300. At least you don't have to replace the transmission. Recently another user, I think with a username of Tylort or tylert similar to you, had the same year, engine, and similar mileage and was dealing with transmission replacement on top of engine problems. Must be an epidemic! If the car is in good shape, the mileage is pretty low so might be worth it. Have to take into account what other maintenance might need done though.
