Default Re: Cylinder 3 misfire & Fuel in Oil

It means the cylinder head will have to be removed and refurbished/replaced. Minimal cost is about $100 if only one valve is replaced and you have free labor. At the top end, I'm guessing about $750 if a shop does the R&R using a quality rebuilt head and you get a warranty. Lots of possibilities in between, but that is the range.

PS: I'm a bit worried about that "gas in the oil". Generally, a bad valve won't cause that. I'm thinking something else is wrong that resulted in the bad valve, and possibly a bad cat converter by now. You may fix the head only to find there are other problems and costs. This could get expensive, more than the value of the car.
