Default '91 Honda Accord LX, estimate for possibility of blown head gasket?

Can someone give me an estimate and let me know what my options are? Thank you.

If the head gasket is gone, it's a half day of work to replace, which will probably cost you around $300. If this is more than you want to spend, there are a couple of half way things you can do: throw some Bars Leak into your radiator, which may just plug the leak in the gasket. Or have your cylinder head re-torqued, which is about an hour's work. Chances are neither will help, but they're cheap.Other options, get rid of it.

more than the value of the car due to the shop hour expense and the time required to complete the repair

I paid about $500 here in Buffalo for a the same type of work on my 1994 Civic w/176,000 miles on it. The gasket kit that Honda has for the car is about $200 alone, and you have 4-5 hours labor at $60/hour, so there you go. BTW, it was worth it. The car picked up power and gas mileage as soon as it was done. The car now has 180,000 and still runs strong.
