The manual will only cost you around $30. I strongly suggest getting one.

Replace a headgasket

it's very detail orientated proses so if you don't have patience and moderate automotive experience i wouldn't even try. with that said if you have the repair manual for the car it's not that hard,you will have to remove the plug wires and coil pack,valve cover and serpentine belt as well as several small hoses....use duct or masking tape to label each side of the wires and hoses you take off ,this will make reassembly much easier...... then loosen the intake and exhaust from the head they don't need to be taken out just separated from the head now you drain the coolant. now remove the spark plugs,raise the right side of the car ,remove right front wheel,put your floor jack with a small piece of 2x4 on top of it under the oil pan and slightly raise the engine about an inch now remove the upper and lower engine strut and remove the large bolt that go's through the motor mount on the passenger side,you will now be able to raise and lower the engine separately from the car witch will be necessary in removing all the bolts for the timing cover,now pull the harmonic balancer off and the timing cover. now set the motor to top dead center then remove the timing belt....we're almost there :) now you should be ready to loosen the head bolts*****in the order and proses described in the repair manual*****this is very important to keep from further damaging the head. now if you need a new head gasket you probably overheated the engine in witch case the head is warped and needs to be machined by a machine shop...if you didn't overheat the car check for straightness according to the manual.while the head is at the shop clean the block with brake part cleaner or something else that leaves no residue and use a razor blade to scrape off the old needs to be clean like it's don't open the new gasket until your ready to put the head back on,set head in place and re-tighten fallowing the directions exactly...........since you're in there already you should replace the timing belt and water-pump too now if you labeled everything before you took it off you should have a pretty easy time putting it back together

My mazda tribute 2001 coolent level goes down quickly without a leak

if it's getting hot also [ i guess if its getting hot it should be leaking out the overflow tube] i would think it's a worn radiator cap or check the oil for water in it [look on dipstick for cloudy looking oil] blown headgasket.
radiator cap easy fix.
blown headgasket, mechanics expensive fix

I have P0128 fault code reading on my obd ii scanner. i guess its the problem with thremostat. there could be any other problems. my car: 2002 buick lesabre limited.

probably just a thermostat issue. get it fixed soon because it could cause a blown headgasket. you can or should get you thermostat replaced during high milage "tune ups" with timing belt, spark plaus, fluid exchanges, etc. don't have to but you definitely will need to replace your coolant

1989 nissan pickup headgasket

Your best bet is to purchase a service manual for that vehicle. It will have what you need in text and illustrations. You should be able to find the manual you need at the same store where you buy your gaskets, tools etc. for the project.

Blown headgasket

Yes the manual for the 740 should be good enough. some of the hoses will go to different locations to the charcoal canister. and the Intercooler will probably have different pipes. Make sure you take pictures when you remove the hoses. Be careful especially around older rubber hoses on the Turbo - Intercooler system as these can be expensive to replace

Blown head gasket

Yes, driving around with a blown headgasket is BADDDD....

If you've never replaced a headgasket before then I would suggest that you not try it without proper supervision and help.
On a v8 when you replace one headgasket you replace the other as well. The gasket kit comes as a set of 2 headgaskets and all other gaskets and o-rings that will need to be replaced. You will need an array of tools to accomplish the mission - some hand tools and some specialty tools for dismantling the cylinder head.
I'm really not trying to scare you off but this is NO SMALL JOB. It will require patience and it will require tools and prior knowledge - so get the HAYNES RePAIR manual for the car and read up if you decide to go for it. I did the headgastets on my Acura Legend v6 - and what should have taken 30 hours start to finish took about 55.
Good Luck and Happy Motoring!!!!!!!
