I believe a shop will be around $1,000 - $1,400. It's not all that hard to do it yourself but it's understandable if you simply do not have the means. The 96/97's aren't as notorious for blowing HG's as their 95-earlier counterparts. Are you sure it is not simply a heater hose or intake gasket that might be the problem? You should check the plugs and the oil to see their condition.

I got quotes 7 years ago for 850 up to 1500 bucks!

For 200 bucks and 7 hours of my life I did it myself and have put another 80,000 miles on the car since then.
