I've been told I have an oil leak in my left head gasket. I was told that it may or may not be serious-more serious if it leaked into my cooling system.
I really can't see the leak. I have ~134K miles on it and we were thinking
of getting a new car. They said they would monitor it and tell me if I needed to get a new head gasket. The entire service and parts would be around $2K so this is really serious for us. I was told by my local gas station that I should get a compression test for both my oil and cooling systems. Is this a good idea? How much would that cost? And what are the results that might come back and how should I interpret all that?
thanks for any advice, comments
