You do not repair a head gasket you just replace it. Major repair involving removing the intake & exhaust manifold, and the heads.

Rotaries don't have cylinders, heads, or head gaskets! It sounds like you have blown a water seal, which is the equivalent to a blown head gasket usually attributed to overheating. Unfotunately, a blown h20 seal requires a rebuild to fix!

i owned a 86 Chevy 1500 it done the same thing if there is a ticking sound along with the steam out the exhuast you've broken a piston, and it has gone through the block then youll need a new engine ,or you have just blown a head gasket and water has seeped into a cylinder on the block . a good sign is water in the oil it will look milky colored. it can be fixed if you didnt warp the head if so just repace the head and head gasket and it should be just fine

Why is it that every time you change the plugs on your wrangler '88 2.5 L the new ones get a fluffy black substance which causes it to stall at any speed?

I have only seen this under one condition. (not saying that this is deff. your cause though) I had an cj-7 that was doing this. It turn out my head gasket was leaking oil and anti-freeze into my cylinders. I had to have the head gasket changed and it solved that prob. Check your antifreeze and your oil to see if they are being mixed. Oil will have a whitesh foam in it if the coolant is getting in. Hope this helps.
