How to change head gasket

Unplug all wires and hoses connected to the cylinder head and remove the head cover. You may need to remove the A/C fan to be able to clear it of the studs on the engine block.2 Set the motor to "top dead center," or TDC. Remove the #1 cylinder's spark plug as well as the valve cover so you can observe the springs. Insert a screwdriver into the open spark plug hole, and rotate the motor by hand, counter-clockwise. When the #1 cylinder is on its intake stroke, watch the screwdriver. Turn the motor very slowly until the screwdriver reaches its highest point. Remove the screwdriver. Slide off the timing belt, and be sure you do not rotate the motor any further.3 Remove the head bolts in order, and double check that no coolant lines are still connected. Lift the cylinder head out. It will be very heavy--this is where you'll likely need the help of another person. Remove the old head gasket. 4 Drain the oil from the cylinder head. Clean the pistons, valves, headbolt holes and all other parts with degreaser and a toothbrush. Wipe down with a paper towel when finished.5 Set the new head gasket into the engine block, lining it up correctly. Carefully place the cylinder head back in, on top of the head gasket. Soak the headbolts in oil to lubricate them, then replace them. Tighten each bolt until it is snug--no further.6 Start the torquing sequence, following the directions in your Honda's manual. In most D-series cars, you need to torque each bolt to 22 foot-pounds, then all to 53 foot-pounds. Be certain to follow the correct torquing sequence as indicated in the manual, or you could warp the head.7 Reinstall the timing belt and reconnect all wires and coolant lines.

    One cylinder is low in my 1998 Volvo s90 and the repair shops says the engine needs to be replaced. Is this true>

    Not necessarily. I assume you mean that the compression on one cylinder is low? This is generally either the rings/cylinder, or valves. Sometimes a blown headgasket can drop compression, but will generally have other symptoms, ie., blown between one cylinder and another, blown between the cylinder and a cooling or oil passage, etc.

    A GOOD shop will check more than compression, to determine where the exact problem is.

    *A head gasket blown between 2 cylinders will have low compression on bothe affected cylinders.
    *A head gasket blown into an oil or cooling passage will blow bubbles (gasses) into the affected area.
    *To check the rings/cylinder, after running the first compression check, put a few ounces of oil into the cylinder through the spark plug hole. Re-run the compression check on that cylinder, and if the compression improves dramatically, you have bad rings on that cylinder.
    *To check the valves, you need what is called a pressure differential guage. You place the affected cylinder at TDC (Top Dead Center) on the compression stroke. You then attach the guage, and apply a set amount of air pressure to the cylinder, usually about 100psi. One dial on the gauge reads input pressure (100psi), and the other reads how much the cylinder is actually holding. A drop of more than 10-15% generally indicates a bad valve in the head (as long as the prevoius checks came out OK). To determine which valve is bad, remove the intake ducting and listen for escaping air (Intake Valve) and listen at the tailpipe for the same (exhaust valve).

    These are general procedures for tests so that you can see if your mechanic has actually performed them or not. If you want to run the tests yourself, I can give you more specific instructions.

    Head Gasket - need to remove the head and check the head and block for cracks. Then replace the gasket and reinstall the head.
    Bad Valve(s) - need to remove the head and have the bad valves reground or replaced by a machine shop and then reinstall the head.
    Bad Rings/Cylinder - the engine will need to be removed and either machined and rebuilt or replaced.

    Again, if you want any more specifics, please ask.

    Hope this was helpful!

    I am trying to remove and reinstall the cylinder head of my 1994 S 10 pickup truck. I have removed the nuts and bolts holding the intake and exhaust manifolds to the head but I am having some dificulty in...

    Leave the exhaust manifold attached and just push it away. Remove the head bolts and make sure all vacuum lines and fuel lines and water lines are disconnected. Make sure you have the head resurfaced before reinstalling and buy new head bolts. Remember to torque the head bolts to spec. But it seems to me like you pretty much got the hang of it.

    I have oil in my anitfreeze what does that mean? how much does it cost to fix it? Is it worth fixing?

    It means you have a blown head gasket or a cracked cylinder head. Its allowing the oil to mix with the water in the cooling system. You will have to remove the belts and accessory's in front of the timing cover, remove crank pulley, remove the timing cover and then timing belt. Remove all connectors, hoses and lines to the intake and cylinder head (Make sure to mark the hoses and connectors to there location for reinstall), remove the intake manifold if it makes it easier to remove cylinder head, if not leave it on and remove the valve cover, Remove the bolts to the cylinder head and pull it off with the intake manifold attached. You should see the gasket if it is not stuck to the bottom of the head. Installation is reverse. Have a Haynes Manual so you can have your torques and timing routing. Is it worth it, cost to replace head gasket verses another car, you have to make the call. I think so because I like no car payment and I know whats in my car. Get a salvaged cylinder head and new head gasket set, Total cost if you do the work yourself and get a good deal on cylinder head, 300 to 400 dollars. Shop cost 700 to 1500 dollars. Just a Ball Park

    Do you have to remove the rocker arms to get to the blown head gasket?

    No sir you do not have to remove the rockers. After removing the headcover you will see the head bolts. Break them loose with a 1/2" breaker bar and remove them starting form the outside and working in a circle towards the center bolts. Be careful when you raise the head form the cylinder block so you do not drop any push rods in the oil pan. You will haver to loosen the rockers and retorque them after you reinstall and retorque the head bolts. You should have the head checked at the automotive machine shop for cracks and warpage before reinstalling it. Thanks for visiting, Rich Any problems just ask .
