Question Asked: repairing head gasket
March 20, 2011, 07:07 PM
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.

<p>The <a id="ce_137" class="ct_glossary tooltip" href="/head-gasket">head gasket</a> may seep oil externally. An updated head gasket is available that will prevent any more oil seepage.</p>
