i am planning on repairing my head gasket myself.(or at least do whatever parts i can.) is there anywhere i can get a complete breakdown of how this is done, what is involved. preferrably a step by step walkthru. i cannot afford a replacement vehicle or a shop so i am left w/doing the repair myself.( there is only a minor oil leak along the passenger side of the engine) so far it runs fine but i would rather fix it now before it internal damage occurs and/or im left stranded w/o any vehicle at all. i understand there are some procedures that must be done by a shop. everything else i can handle myself. i would greatly appreciate any info anyone has to offer.
my straight 6 engine is seeping oil out the passenger side along the seam where the head meets the block. about a quart every wk and a half. otheer then that it runs fine. what can i do on my own? by a shop? estimates?, and is it even worth it money wise? any thoughts and opinions would be grateful.
while driving, and after sputtering a couple of times, my jeep died. it re-started a few times. then wouldnt start at all. prior to this it was always hard starting. hot/cold,am/pm didnt matter.
