'89 mx6 I've owned since '00. The F2; not the F2T. The oil & water were mixing through the head gasket, so I replaced it. I decided to record it just to keep me from dragging my feet too much. Thanks for watching. Enjoy.

How to replace your head and head gasket pt. 3
The third and final installment of this video series----UPDATE----- We are
about 4 weeks on and running EXCELLENT! I highly suggest to anyone who is
considering pouring that cheapo head gasket repair crap into their coolant
system, do the job right there is much satisfaction in knowing you did a
good job, you can rely upon your repair, and your vehicle loves you for it!
How to replace your head and head gasket pt. 1
Here is how I changed the head and gasket on my 1992 Mazda B2600i pickup
truck. This was the first time I have ever done a head gasket repair, and I
have to say that most everything went according to plan. It was actually a
lot easier than I anticipated. Total work time was about 14 hours, plus 2
weeks waiting for parts to arrive, that was the hardest part, haha. I am
not especially mechanically trained or inclined, just interested in
mechanics and the way they work, and that has helped me tremendously
through procedures like this. I have found that since I want to learn about
the way these parts connect, disconnect, and cooperate together, I have
been able to do things to my cars and trucks that I never thought I could.
Taking care of your own vehicles is definitely a rewarding activity, for
many reasons. Obviously you save a lot of money, you can rely on yourself
to get your truck running in a jam, and are rarely stranded on the side of
the road for long. Also, with more people doing their own work on their
cars, mechanic services will be devalued, thus making it more affordable
for everyone ($100 per labor hour, can you believe that?!?) Also, there is
definitely a sense of satisfaction which comes from a job well done, being
an interested and capable and competent individual, and helping out your
friends with their problems. I like to learn, I like to be handy and useful
to others, I like to save money, and I like to get dirty, so whenever I can
I wrench on my own trucks and motorcycles.
A special thanks to the fine folks at the Mazdatruckin.com forum for all
the technical articles. Hopefully you all can use this series of videos to
help guide you through a similar procedure, really it is not that hard, and
totally worth it.

reman head $251

That is about $1000 less than a mechanic would charge. Be brave, and do it

Subaru Head gasket installation instructions
Get a torque wrench on Amazon
Subaru Head gasket installation instructions for putting your new head
gaskets on. Another thing people will usually replace at the same time is
the head bolts. I recommend doing this if there has been severe warping of
the heads due to severe overheating. Often times the original lead based
gasket fails due to age/heat cycles/expansion and the bolts are fine. In
this case it's fine to clean the old ones with a wire brush and dip the
tips in motor oil and re use them.
blue devil head gasket sealant repairs a blown head gasket
A product called Blue Devil Head Gasket Sealant is added to the radiator
and is said to repair head gasket leaks.This product saved me ~2k +.With
their money back guarantee I had nothing to lose.Spent some time on
Saturday and Sunday doing the work and was driving on Monday.Can't say it
will fix all head gasket issues but i have nothing but accolades for this
product.All error codes were cleared.This product does not contain solids
as did products from the last century.Go to their website and follow the
directions instead of what is on the bottle.What you need to do is remove
as much glycol solution as you can,remove the thermostat,fill with
water,add the "Blue Devil",cap the radiator and circulate for 50
minutes.This solution will flash when it hits the hot spot(bad
gasket)leaving sodium silicate behind.In theory this is a permanent repair.
We shall see.
Update:3/20/10 After ~1100 miles it is still holding.Oil is clear with no
coolant and there is no coolant loss.
Update#2: 12/3/10 There is now 4k on the motor since adding BD.Just did the
second oil change.Added about 1/2 pint of coolant .Ready for winter.Still
going strong.No smoke or coolant loss issues.
Update #3: 3/14/11,85,000 miles,7,000 miles since "the" repair. The past
week resulted in coolant getting into the cylinders.There was no coolant in
the oil and the expansion tank was not bubbling.The vehicle was not smoking
like the last time,just a light vapor and coolant dripping from the weep
hole on the muffler.
Added a bottle of BD and yes it worked again.Anyone want to buy a truck ?
Mazda MX6 - How to Upgrade Your Struts & Springs
Upgrading ND28's GoldMember MX-6 using Tokico Blues (HB/HP Series) with
Megan Racing (lowering) springs. The setup will cost about $400-$500
(depending on vendors) and can be completed in a weekend.
The end result is a medium spring rate which is still comfortable yet
provides less body roll in the corners and makes spirited driving much more
enjoyable. In my opinion this kit is a very nice upgrade for those who
want a great balance of performance and comfort.
