    At a geuss i would say quite expensive as the head needs to be removed the valves need to be remeved then a rebuild inc new gaskets

    It all depends on how good you are with the spanners you will either need to make or buy a cam locking tool that holds them in place to the rocker cover while you bolt them down then theres the timing belt that needs replacing and i woul replace the serpantine belt aswell.
    Any garage sould be able to do the job have a look on here for reccomended machnics near you.

    You'll be lookin about 350 - 500 for all the gaskets & belts replaced, if done by a garage.

    The head will need skimming, valves should also be reseated, and the head bolts replaced.

    It's cheaper to DIY, if you have the time and ability, and know a good machine shop to skim and reseat, but if garage work goes wrong, it's straight back to them until it's right, which could end up working in your favour if there are problems....

    Good luck...
