You should get a manual for repair as you will need specs and such, and there are tricks to each vehicle, 35 yrs in the business and i still use manuals, you can purchase a gasket kit that will give you all the necessary seals, have the heads checked at a machine shop for defect or cracks, also get new head bolts, use new fluids, and replace any parts that seem worn

How much will it cost to repair a leaking head gasket on a 2000 ford focus se?


Header gaskets are fairly expensive to replace. It depends on the labor rates of the repair facility. I would try to find a local community college that has an automotive degree program. Usually they will charge much less for the fix (to help students learn) than a garage. If that isn't an option I would replace the head gasket and not the whole engine. Of course, if there is other damaged caused by the leaky gasket that is another story. There is a lot of labor involved with replacing a header gasket. I would say anywhere from $500 to $1000 anyway. Hope this helps.

Blown head gasket


Well it would really depend on the condition of your engine.
It would take more labor to repair your engine than it would to just replace it. But unless the engine is very damaged it should be cheaper to have your engine fixed. And replacing the head gasket and having the head repaired should be under the price you were given. A head gasket set for a 4 cyl engine is around $100 wholesale.
I would call around and check with other shops next.

How do you disassemble a head gasket for a 2004 toyota camery?


replacing a head gasket is a major repair and really should not be attempted if you dont have adequate knowledge and experince withthe process. That said, the head gasket is sandwiched between the cylinder head and the engine block. It requires removing everything from the top of the motor, then removing the cylinder head itself. The old gasket must be completely scraped off the head and the top of the block and any adhesive removed as well... The new gasket is placed on the top of the block in it correct place. Each side of the gasket must be covered with a thin coat of gasket compound. The place the head on top of the gasket, sandwiching it in between and replace the head bolts and torque them down to the required torque. Replace everything removed from top of motor in reverse order. Keep in mind that in replacing a head gasket, it is entirely possible that your problem may be the head itself instead of the gasket. While the head is off, take it to a machine shop and have them inspect it and if its needs it, have them repair it. Again . this is not a do it yourself job.

What are your changes of having of taking the blown head gasket to machine shop and repaired and putting back on motor


Cylinder head gaskets (the thin copper layer between the head and block) are not normally repairable, it is better to fit a new one.

If you mean getting the cylinder head itself repaired at the machine shop that is certainly possible but depends on the extent of the damage and wether it is iron or aluminium (particularly if it needs welding).

How do i repair a blown head gasket on my 1992 cadillac deville V8 4.9L


The correct way is to remove the head(s) have the head(s) checked for warpage repair as necessary then clean everything good and replace the head gaskets. There are some places that advertise a product that is suppose to seal a head gasket leak but remember if it seals the headgasket leak it may stop up your radiator, also it will just be a temporary repair

If this car needs head gasket is it worth buying


A head gasket repair is major work, not worth it unless the car is really nice and dirt cheap. One side note is that if this car has the 3.1 or 3.4 liter engine they are notorious for intake gaskets leaking that will have alot of the same symptoms as a head gasket but its alot less work to repair. Good luck!
