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.

Yesterday the car over heat and stop by the time aaa came it started back but shakes a little then stop when u cut it on think its the motor how much do a motor cost for a toyota camery 1994 used or new

it is very possible that the head gasket is blown and the head is warped an engine new will cost about 3000.00 and used anywhere from 500.00 to 900.00 and installation is not included if the car does not have a whole lot of miles it would be safe to replace the head gasket and have the old head tested for leaks and warps or replaced which would be considerably less than a new engine
