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. My expenses: head gasket $44 reman head $251 jug oil $12 jug coolant $14 manifold gasket set $14 TOTAL $335 That is about $1000 less than a mechanic would charge. Be brave, and do it yourself!

Bad head gasket symptoms, Head gasget bad? Easy way to check- Chevy Uplander
This is an Easy way to check for bad head gasket(s). This video shows Co2 gases entering a vehicles cooling system due to bad head gaskets. This is what can happen when you do not change your vehicles Antifreeze every 2 years with composite head gaskets. The other problem I have seen is that with steel layered head gaskets the cylinder head looses it seal to the engine block over time and starts leaking between the layers. I have seen some vehicles with as low as 32,000 miles a lot of vehicle around 80-100,000. Probable cause two different metals (aluminum heads on a steel engine block) and two different rates of expansion and contraction. Some symptoms can be thermostat, misfire and 02 sensor codes, bubbles in cooling system, heating problems, oil slime in coolant tank and or radiator, low coolant levels, leaking, split or blown out radiators, leaking water pumps, intake gaskets leaking oil and or antifreeze, catalytic converters that are inefficient or clogged, oxygen sensors that quit working properly and spark plugs that are coolant fouled. If the problem has gone on for long period of time and the gasket(s) is deteriorated enough and the antifreeze is now entering the combustion chamber, then you might have other symptoms of white smoke out the Exhaust and antifreeze mixed in with your oil. Dealers used to say Maintenance Free, Change your Antifreeze every 5 years or 150,000 miles. Now they say 30,000 miles, which for most of us is about 2 years. Huge difference. Be mindful of these symptoms and remember to Find and fix the cause not just the symptom. This video is of a 2007 Chevy Uplander, 3.9 Liter with 52,181 miles.

A quick note about head warpage....depending on the cause of your head gasket failure, you may need to have the head and/or block resurfaced at a machine shop. Having this done is not always necessary but may be required if one or both of your head gasket mating surfaces is out of the manufactured specified range for head and block warpage. Accurately measuring this using a precision straight edge and the feeler gauges as shown in this video is a vital step and should not be overlooked.
