SOURCE: Need to know roughly how long it would take to

Depends on your level of experience, quality of your tools and whether or not you have any frozen head bolts. The valve assembly and head come off as one unit on those. To clear the wires, emmision controls ect off of the top of the valve cover 30 minutes. remove valve cover 5 minutes (too scrape off excess gasket material. to remove exhaust manifold from side of head, (assuming no broken/stuck/stripped bolts 15 minutes with good hydraulic tools. To remove head (assuming all goes well and hydraulic tools, 15 minutes. To reassemble, double all times as surfaces need to be prepped and gaskets applied and proper torque on all bolts. It's an afternoon job if you ahve everything you need and nothing goes wrong. Typically add at least two or three hours of drilling and cursing to a head gasket replacement. and a trip for new drill bits and a tap (not beer) for the new hole you drilled.

What grade of oil does the 3100 v6 engine take


Any good oil will work. newer engines use 5-30 for better gas mileage. Your car may have 100K miles so I would use 10-30 or 20-30 if you can find it. Change the oil and filter every 3000-4000 miles and the engine will last a long time.

I GOT BLUE SMOKE POURING OUT THE TAIL PIPE ON A 94 BUICK CENTURY 3100 V6 WHAT COULD IT BE


That would be oil burning. Pay close attention to your oil level, check it daily. You will need to get the engine checked by a shop or mechanic to troubleshoot the problem for sure and make a decision on where to go. Hope this helps.

For a car as old as mine, is it worth fixing the blown head gasket? How expensive is it? How difficult of a job is it? It's a 1995 Buick Century V6 3100 with an over head cam. Also, how do I know if the...


yes the head is machinable and it will be relatively difficult to do if not much know is in that vehicle. it is worth it but may cost a 1000 or two to be done because of all the parts that need to be taken off and put back together. As well as the machining part.
