You can purchase one at an autoparts store for about $20 - $25 or on ebay for $10. A haynes or chilton manual will give you step by step instructions. If you've never done this before you are looking at about 2 - 4 days of work and make sure to GET THE HEAD(S) RESURFACED. Don't try to save money by skipping this step doing so will make you do the whole thing over again.

SOURCE: Have a 99 suburban that runs great with just under 100K, been blowing white smoke. Shop originally quoted head gasket. Upon starting repairs they decided exhaust manifold gasket instead. They replaced
I think that you should go to an accredited specialist shop that works on your make vehicle as I think that you may be led up the garden path if you stay with that shop. White smoke can be lean mixture or water but I would suggest a compression test done to check for a head gasket/ cracked head problem before I would consider an engine . I would also run the fault codes to check for EGR valve problems as these are subject to failure around your mileage.

Can't say for sure but its not cheap .
Thats not why I answered you .The problem may be the head gaskets but most likely its not .
The intake manifold gasket would be far more likely to be the problem with a Chevy engine and its a lot cheaper to do . Check it before you commit same symtems has it over heater lately that will do it everytime
