A head gasket is a big job. if you aren't familiar with engines i would suggest having it done at a shop. the head gasket is keeping the engine head and the engine block sealed.
it requires time and the removal of many important pieces that can cause problems if not done correctly

Need to know what a P52,P109, and a I52 code are on a '95 caddy eldo with the 4.6L Northstar

I think all three codes are for loss of memory in the computer.
Normally this happens when you disconnect the battery.
Not sure how these codes would affect the transaxle.
The Northstar is a different bird from other Cadillacs - so these codes may be something different for it.

1998 aurora oil pan leaking profusly looks like it is coming from the oil pan not sure

it's the oilpan gasket. it's a northstar motor. the caddys with the northstar do it to. mine does it as well. just go to autozone and get some leak stop :) within a thousand miles you'll be nice and dry. it's just a problem the motors had for a few years

Setting the camshaft timing isnecessary whenever the camshaft drive system has been disturbed,meaning the relationship between any chain and sprocket has been lost.Correct timing exists when the crankshaft and intermediate shaftsprocket timing marks are in alignment and all 4 camshaft drive pinsare perpendicular (90 degrees) to the cylinder head surface.
