Dear Failed Head Gasket.....
The answer to your question is YES!!! These auto repair manuals are sold at your local autoparts stores$25-$30 and they are Haynes and Chilton's manuals.They are all application specific and make it a much easier repair for the first timer auto tech.They include detailed instructions and also have torque specs and electronic and mechanical specs.P.S......When you do the head gasket it IS BEST to do both sides!!! So congrats!!! Sounds like you're ready for this!!!Any more questions get back to me...HOPE I COULD HELP!!!

My 1987 ford tarus 3.0 ltr wagon has suddenly started chugging real bad like its gonna die and it sounds like its not getting gas. its also spewing out antifreeze from the back part of the engine..


You have a bad head gasket leak. Replace the head gasket.

Do not run the engine this way. If water gets into the cylinder that cannot be pushed out by the piston, you can have a hydraulic lock event that bends or breaks the piston or connecting rod, or bend or breaks the crankshaft. That would spell the end of that engine.
