need a mechanic in Indianapolis

My 2003 1800c has a possible blown head gasket. Looking for a mechanic/shop in Indianapolis that will give an estimate and can perform this work. Any recommendations would be appreciated

What I would do....

Find one yet?

It is important to know the exact problem to avoid getting hosed, ripped off, fleeced.

If it was mine, I would systematically take it apart to determine that.

With the help of the forum members, I would put it back together.

If you can't , then at least you know the remedy. Take it to a dealer/mechanic.

Good Luck.

What is it you are doing to troubleshoot?

Not doubting you, just seeing what it is you can do with " lack of tools and knowhow"
