In a "Nut Shell":
Purchase a top end gasket set for your engine, open the hood, disconnect the battery, remove intake components (filter, breather, linkages, fuel line, manifold, etc...), remove valve cover, remove head bolts in a cross pattern, take head to machine shop to have head resurfaced, clean mating surface on block, install new head gasket and reverse order to reassemble.

Otherwise, for more specific/accurate instruction get a good shop manual for your engine.

My 99 Sierra eats up antifreeze like crazy but it isn't leaking into the oil and I haven't been able to find an external leak. I also have a misfire problem on my number 3 cylinder but I don't know if it's...


I would venture to say you have a bad head gasket on the driver's side, or a bad head. The antifreeze is probably entering #3 cyl. Lucas makes a stop leak for around $30 a bottle. I'd give it a shot and change the second spark plug back on the driver's side.

Lookin to put in gear oil in thr rear


On the front side of the rear differential (drivers side I think, maybe passenger's) there's a plug with a square indentation in it. Just big enough to fit a 3/8 or 1/2 inch ratchet head into it. Turn it counter-clockwise to remove it. It's a little over half way up because that's where the fluid should be. Make sure you're on even/level ground. Gear oil can be added most times by cutting the tip off the nipple on the bottle, slip a small hose over it, invert and squeeze the bottle.

Coolant leaking vw Passat 1.6 1999 heat on with fan, window fogs.


is the floor board on passenger side wet???If yes it's the heater core, which should be accessible by removing the glove box. Did u check the oil, to see if it 's milky??? some times on the vw of any kind, they spring a slow leak on the head gasket which could cause the abnormal starting in the morning. Which then, as the engine warms up causes the gasket to swell up and seal itself untill the engine cools completely off again. Eventually the gasket will completely fail and u'll have to bring it to a shop or get a repair manual to replace the head gasket.
