Is that a straight six or a vee?? Personally I would struggle to do a straight six in a day, usually booking the car in for at least two. This takes account of the fact that I will always get the head skimmed to true, and my local friendly machine shop don't know the meaning of the phrase "hurry up!". I can't complain as their job is always of top quality!!
Vee six obviously has two heads, so unless you plan on just doing one, it is even more work!!
its a straight six,im not saying i need it done but i have got a water leak which is getting quite bad,its on the side of the water pump and im hoping its just that,so what would i be looking at cost wise for a head gasket roughly?
I think you will find a water pump change on the 104 engine is something like 6 hours shop time plus cost of pump (approx £200 genuine) so not cheap BUT will last another 14 years if done properly and proper Mercedes coolant used.
