Small block chevy head gaskets are fairly easy to do ..pull throttle body distributor vac lines unplug harness pull intake manifold pull exhaust manifolds loosen rocker arms just enough to get the off pushrods pull push rods make a template of placement you will want them to go back where they came from remove brackets from front of heads a/c alternator power steering ect now heads should be ready to pull after removing bolts of course do install in reverse will torque specs and sequence for install if you do one gasket should just do both and when they are off take to machine shop and have tested and checked for straightness

SOURCE: NEED INSTRUCTIONS HOW TO FIX HEAD GASKET

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.

SOURCE: What is the book labor to change a head gasket on a 2002 1500 Suburban

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

My 95 chevy suburban 5.7 temp. gauge fluctuates from operating temp 195 to 170 back to 195 as I drive


there are two things that can be wrong here.
1-wiring or the sensor itself may be bad.
2-you have a bad head gasket(not blown all the way)but starting to go therefore the fluctuation on the gauge itself.
does it go down when you give it gas? does it uses coolant with out leaking? let me know

I suspect you have had an oil pump failure. To get at the rotory gear oil pump you will have to drop the oil pan. After you take the pan off, ( having drained the oil the oil pump is what the oil pick up line leads into. That pick up assy. is a round shaped disc with a screen inside it. Clean the screen first then the oil pump. Install new oil pan gasket on reassembly. Hope that helps you. Please let me know.

Hopefully the engine was not damaged when the pump broke. If it was you may need a complete engine rebuild, MAYBE.
