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
Hpno & Jaz Adventures! Changing the top right motor mount on a 2005 Dodge Neon SXT
This is my first auto repair video. I'm not a professional videographer nor
a mechanic. Under no circumstance am I saying I am a professional. We
usually do things ourselves to save money and because we know how to do
them, but when we don't we do see a professional mechanic. This video does
not replace in any way the advice of a professional mechanic. You might
experience more car shaking after replacing a motor mount, specially if you
only replace one and you have other bad motor mounts. Mine were replaced
about 3 1/2 years ago by the dealer. They should not wear that quick, but I
drive my car a lot and I drive it hard so that's why I had to replace them
again. Plus when I bought my car it had already been hit apparently (my
mechanic said so) and the frame of the car in one side is pushed in which
might cause more vibration and more wear and tear. I purchased this motor
mount from Advanced Auto Parts and it cost me $37.99 plus tax so around 41
bucks. I know at Auto Zone is the same price at least in my area and you
can find them at ebay or another store for cheaper. If you are going to get
it replaced at a professional, I do advice for you to ask if you can buy
your own part. I know when I used to go to Tire Kingdom I would always buy
my part and just pay for labor because they double the prices on parts now
that I moved, I don't have the same luck. Some places will not accept that.
But if you know where they buy their parts which is usually an auto part
store near them, just buy it yourself. Get a quote and the parts you need
and then give it to them to use. Price might vary in your state. The other
motor mounts will be checked and replaced as well at a later time. If I do
a video of the replacement I will post it. I believe that one can learn
about cars and learn enough to do your own repairs. But nothing compares
with professional advice.
