Testimonial: "Really appreciate ALL this help ! Thank you so much."
If the body is solid and the rest of the car is in decent shape, certainly fix it. Your best bet would be to pick up a Haynes repair manual for your car. It will have all the info, with pictures and drawings that you will need to do the job, including torque amounts. It'll probably take you a couple days at most and the parts are not expensive, just remember that a head gasket has a TOP and a BOTTOM. Also make sure the new one matches identically to the old one, the same holes in the same places.

SOURCE: head gasket blown
there are many was a head gasket can blow . sometimes they just leak to the outside sometimes they leak to the coolant and then it blows out your antifreeze. if you have a blown head gasket you will see it when you pull the head. and yes you should hace the head checked at a machine shop and install with a new head set never reuse a gasket .

SOURCE: IS this car worth fixing up?
It depends on a few things...first, do you have money to buy a brand new car or make payments on a new car? Does that car have sentimental value to you? Can you get your money back if you fixed it back up and sold it? (blue book value of the car plus the cost of repairs) Do you like the make and model you have and are you comfortable owning and driving that car for the next few years? Other things to cosider is do you own another car? Was the car given to you? Is it worth sending it to the junk yard?
