It takes spark, fuel, and compression at the right time for an engine to run. So you are probably missing one or more of these three things.
Have you checked compression on all cylinders ? Is the cam timing correct ? Do you have fuel and spark ?
Replacing the head gasket on any car is a LOT of work. You have to remove pretty much the top half of the engine. Also, if the head gasket blew because it overheated then you may need to have the head resurfaced. You should be able to get an estimate from an auto repair shop. If you want to do it yourself then set aside lots of time, take photos as you disassemble the engine so you can remember how to put everything back, and be prepared to buy some tools that you might not already have.
Unscrew the rocker cover and remove the top casing, most cars now have gasket seal rather than a gasket so check this. Put new gasket in place and then replace top casing, replacing the bolts back in the order they should be in, then put rocker cover back on... HYUNDAI MATRIX 1 6L 2003 G4ED F4AF3
The head gasket needs replaced. This particular Saturn is known for having this exact problem, and 9 out of 10 times, replacing the head gasket fixes it. I just did it myself for $35.
Go to checker/autozone and get a head gasket (should just need the gasket and not the entire kit) and a tube of RTV silicon grease to help make the seal.
Unhook everything from the engine (plugs, wires, etc, and unscrew the head. There should be about 10 or so screws surrounding the black plastic head cover. You'll find things a mess in here, but clean it up best you can. Remove the old gasket and clean the entire gasket area completely and make sure its dry. Put down your RTV grease, the new gasket, some more RTV, and screw the head back on. MAKE SURE YOU DON'T SCREW IT TOO TIGHT. The screws only need to be snug. Tighten it like you would a spark plug. Put everything back together and you should be good to go. Might run like **** the first half mile or so.
depands on how mechanical your are . and you will need to send the head to a machine shop for plaining.you need tools and a torque wrench and the specs for tighten the head back down .it can be done with patience and on rare cases you can lift the head to replace the gasket without taking everything apart
