Is it easy to change head gaskit on a mk6 rs2000 and do u need any special tools to do this


On the scale of engine repairs - changing a head gasket is a precise job.

A torque wrench is required to put the right amount of tension to the bolts when refitting the head. Sometimes the cylinder head won't come of that easily - an engine hoist is a big help to get the head of evenly at every side.

Then removing the old gasket can take sometime since it can't be scraped of by force. When rebolting the head - the order in which bolts are fixed is very important - you need the bolt pattern from a service manual.

The rest of the job is rather straight forward - best to do inside.

How do I replace the head gasket without pulling the engine?


remove all upper components to engine as far down toward head as you can. next support the engine from below with a floorjack with a board on top to distrubute the weight, this should allow the engine to rise up and forward enouf to get down to the heads

How do I change and replace the transmission seal and filter. How do I know if I need to replace the head gaskets.


The rear transmission seal can be changed without pulling the transmission. The front seal requires the transmission to be separated from the engine. To change the rear seal you take off the drive line and use a seal puller. Head gaskets need to be replaced if you find water in the oil, have an overheating engine that runs rough or if the coolant smells like gas. One way to tell is to do a compression check on all cylinders.

I have some motor oil in the water and i would know if you have any idea where to start to look in this kind of internal leek


It's a blown head gasket, the whole top of the engine has to be pulled apart, and the head taken off to get at the gasket.If it's a v6 or a v8, might just as well change both, cause you can't tell which gasket is leaking.

How do you know if you cracked your head gasket, or if it's blown, or if it is something wrong with your car.


Engine cold, you open the radiator cap. You'll lose some coolant, so having a deep drip pan underneath is advisable. Be aware that antifreeze is poisonous to pets, as they are attracted to the sweet smell, and will drink it. It is also bad for humans, and should be kept away from children. Can cause blindness.
(Thanks for letting me state that. I feel better now)

First thing, pull the oil dipstick, and observe where the oil level is. You should have your vehicle on a flat level surface. Wipe the dipstick off with a clean rag, and recheck the level. If it is way overfull, and has yellowish globs, you have a blown head gasket, or a cracked engine block.

Getting the engine too hot, can cause a blown head gasket. Not enough antifreeze, or changing it when it's the change interval, can cause the engine to freeze, and crack the block.
Bring the dipstick close to your nose, and see if you can smell antifreeze.

Start the engine and observe the coolant. You may need a flashlight. You will see some bubbles as the coolant flows, through the coolant tubes of the radiator. This is normal. As the engine warms up, and the thermostat opens, if you see a constant stream of bubbles coming to the top, you have a blown head gasket.
