Doing a head replacement and or head gasket is a huge job on any car. Last time I did one it took me 5hrs with 3 friends helping and a whole lot of tools. You basically have to remove most of the upper engine components. I can provide a step by step with pictures if you like but i need to know if you have the 3.0, 3.2, or 3.8.

Hope this helps

What gaskets do I need besides my head gasket when replacing the head gasket on a 2004 Ford Taurus, in otherwords what would replace while doing this job car has 168000 kms

Head bolts and head gaskets. Let's see, you will need a lower and upper intake set as well. These head gaskets usually blew because bad fan relays caused the gaskets to blow and warped the heads. Ford used cheap oil pressure switches that leaked as well.

I need to know how to rebuild the top end on my 96 camaro 3800 v6

You'll need to remove the heads. Take them to a machine shop. They will do a valve job, check the heads for cracks, check for bad valve guides and replace the valve stem seals.

Where can i find the heater core on a taurus 96 lx?

hi, the heater core is behind the center console behind the dash board ill warn you now its not easy to get to and it is a big job just to change the part your getting to its going to take a whole days hard work just to get to see the heater matrix as this is what i think your going on about.

It isnt easy to explain all the work involved so it would be a lot easier to get a repair manual as their is a hell of a lot of work involved just to get to it and its even harder getting all the pieces put back together so the manual will give you alot of help as its just to hard to get to just by removing the parts you can see due to the fact their are screws that you cant see.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

How hard is it to replace and how much will it

Not hard, just time consuming. It's only $12 a gasket. You will need an intake gasket to because that also has to come off. The trick is just to LABEL EVERYTHING before pulling all the parts off the manifold and heads. Make sure to drain the oil and antifreeze first and also disconnect the battery.
