Head gaskets usually don't just go bad on Toyotas. Find and correct the cause. While you're at the parts store buying the gaskets, pick up a manual for the Celica. It's great to have the illustrations when setting the timing etc.

Yes. It's a real pain in the ***. You're going to have to remove the intercooler from the top of the engine. Just be glad it's an air-to-air intercooler, not an air-to-water "charge cooler" like mine. Once it's off (pour some gas in it and swill it around to give it a bit of a clean), you can start getting the bolts out to get the head off. Take the spark plugs out first. I don't *think* you need to remove the inlet manifold on this car.

For further help & advice go to gt4oc.net. You don't have to pay for a subscription, there's plenty of resources and if you post nicely in the free area someone is bound to lend a hand. If you're going to be doing a lot of self maintenance on your GT4, it's probably worth the $$ for membership!
