Earlier this week, my 2002 Honda Accord died on the freeway. My mechanic, whom I trust, said (A) that a heater hose had burst and (B) the head gasket had blown. So the question is, should I get the head gasket replaced? (He says that if we go that route he would also advise doing a valve job and a timing chain replacement at the same time.)
The car has 210,000 miles on it; the transmission was replaced, by Honda, at 105,000 miles. I like the car and I’d like to get another couple of years out of it, but I don’t know if I’d be throwing good money after bad.
Thanks for any advice,
