1994 Pontiac Sunbird was driven for three months without coolant until it overheated a day ago. It overheated on the way home and started smoking out of the air vents. That night, I filled it with...

i assume the shop was talking about heater core being bad and even if heater core is bad they should be able to test for a head gasket being bad actually you can totally bypass the heater core so there no reason to fix that before you check for a head gasket being bad
and if you have run for three months without coolant you will be extremely lucky if the head gasket not blown or head or block cracked
i would do nothing about the heater until car is checked for blown head gasket
honestly i would take the car some where else because they are either trying to screw u or have no idea of what there doing

How do i replace the head gasket on a 1991 pontiac sunbird?

Have you ever done a head gasket before? If not I would suggest buying a manual. Most parts stores sell them for about 25 dollars. They are well worth it.

Most likey a bad head gasket between #2 and 3 cylinder. Pull the valve cover and see ifthe valves are working, and blue smoke could be valve guide seals and the valves may be stuck open.

Two front cylinders are low

If your going to chg. head gasget, as long as you got the head off you would be smart to have a valve job done too. That could be why you lost compression in the 2 cyls. burnt valves will cause loss of compression. But take note if you elect to have a valve job done you also run the risk of it to start useing oil because of the increase in compression on the oil rings with that many miles it can happen.
