Depands on how mechanical your are . and you will need to send the head to a machine shop for plaining.you need tools and a torque wrench and the specs for tighten the head back down .it can be done with patience and on rare cases you can lift the head to replace the gasket without taking everything apart

Stalling and running rough - Hyundai Elantra - 2001-05


The Hyundai Elantra 2001 - 2005, 2.0 L engine is noted for this problem. It will lack power on acceleration and run rough and stall while driving. The engine light will come on for misfire codes. This problem is caused by a vaccum leak at the intake manifold gasket. The gasket is broken and needs to be replaced.
To replace the intake gasket with a new one, remove the 12m nuts holding the intake to the cylinder head. Then pry back( note: you do not have to completely remove the intake manifold here) the intake manifold to gain excess to remove the old gasket. Remove any excess gasket and clean with brake cleans the surface area of the intake. Install the new intake gasket on to the head and carefully install intake on to cylinder head studs. Tighten up nuts gradually and evenly to 15-20 ft.lbs.

My 06 hyundai elantra is in the shop right now for a repair of a head gasket, its almost at 60,000 miles. They said that a major service is coming up.....what type of major service are they talking about?


Major service means tune up and timing belt.
Look up your owner manual , there is a service schedule section , you'll find what needs to be done at 60k on your car , but in any case it shouldn't add up much more cost sience engine all apart,
And as for the timing belt (if you have one) , they have to replace it anyway , because when you do a head gasket , you take timing belt out.

How hard is it to replace a head gasket on a hyundai lantra


Most head gaskets are straight forward. If you can replace one on a front wheel drive Ford you can replace about any front wheel drive head gasket. The only difference would be where the bolts are to remove the intake and exhaust. After that everything else is about the same. The best advice i can give is take time to read a manual like Haynes. They have manuals for just about every vehicle on the market.
