You have to take the cams out in order to get the head off, since they "cover" the head bolts...

You dont have to remove the cams, but it did blow a head gasket so the head needs to go to a shop to be checked out. I would not leave my cams in if you are taking it to a shop because those guys are good but they do loose stuff.

My grand am still overheats even after i changed the termostat and water pump plus, the fan only runs when the temp sensor is unplugged


I had the same problem with my 1999 grand am .I changed water pump, thermostat. I heard the Pontiac engines , 3.4 had overheating problems one is the intake gasket if your losing water but don't know were its going its leaking at the intake gasket and burning off or if you check the oil cap or the dip stick and theres a milky substance on them it would be your head gasket I had to change my head gasket and while I was there I changed the intake gasket too. I haven't had any problems sence I changed them hope this helps. Jack

Which 1.9 motor from saturn is better single over head or dual over headcam


you can not just change the engine you would need to change the transmission and the computer the front exhaust pipe but if you are willing do do it anyway the signal cam engines had a problem with the cylinder heads cracking and the dual cam is common for oil leaks

Water poured out and water in my oil


Water in the oil can only mean a few things: a blown head gasket, intake manifold gasket (on some engines), a cracked/broken cylinder head, or a cracked/broken cylinder wall in the engine block.

In any of these cases, it is going to require major engine repair to fix it. There may be moderate to severe damage to the engine bearings (cam and crank bearings) due to the water in the oil. I would recommend TOWING it to a professional repair shop to get an evaluation of the damage. You may be able to fix it with a head gasket replacement and an oil change, or you may have to replace the entire engine. DO NOT OPERATE THE ENGINE OR TRY TO DRIVE THE VEHICLE. This will only GAURANTEE that you will need to replace the entire engine!

Oil in radiator dead miss in #3 cyl 1994 ford explorer 4X4 also runs hot in about 18 miles with ac on could this be a blown head gasket or something else


If there is oil in the radiator - DO NOT DRIVE THE CAR. You are risking serious engine damage. After you change the head gasket, you must change the oil and the antifreeze. You definitely have at least a blown head gasket. On the bright side you know for sure which head to take off.

Changing a head gasket on a 1984 rodeo 2000 g200 kb28 with a sohc. How do i take off the timing chain?


there is a special tool. it holds the chain against the hydraulic tensioner and on the cam sprocket. you need this to prevent tensioner from loosing its prime and keep the timing from moving. once tool is in place remove bolt holding cam sprocket and you lift head off leaving chain and sprocket in place.
