    You don't need to know much to change a gasket on a car. If you get confused you can use the old gasket as a template and model it after that. Most of the time you will see where you need to put it so all you have to do is clean the area and then put the gasket where it needs to be. One thing I would also consider is using a silicon spread to keep a tighter seal. It is just for security reasons.

Are you certain it's the head gasket? If you are not blowing white smoke in plumes it's not the head gasket!!! Check this out...

Your upper intake manifold gasket may have developed a leak.

1998 olds intrigue keeps running out of radiator fluid and hoses good

Is fluid leaking onto the ground? Onto the front floor? . If you cannot find an obvious leak, you may want to check you oil when car is cold. Look for traces of white goop, or water in the oil. Smell dipstick and see if it smells like gas . I'm leaning towadrs a head gasket if you cannot find a leak. More details will be needed to say anymore. Have a look for leaks first

Water getting in the oik

Usually due to a leaking head gasket, or a cracked head. Do not drive or run an engine with coolant in the oil. It will destroy bearings real quick.

Oil leak in 1998 olds intrigue does not appear to be the rocker arm cover gaskets. Any advice on how to pinpoint the leak ?

pull the valve cover gaskets, clean them and replace them, there is no cheater way to do this. To pin point leak you'l need to look closely at the covers if oil is running down the sides towards front or back of motor (theres 2 covers, one front, one rear) if it is, you may be able to tighten bolts, but be careful not to strip them. If they are tight, youl need to change the cover gaskets
