With all due respect, you must purchase the appropriate manual for your vehichle. You will need a full set of tools including the belt tensioner tool and a torque wrench and a good jack/jackstands. If you have all of this the step-by-step procedure in the manual can be followed with little or no difficulty. Start by cleaning the visible engine areas with degreaser and a cloth and by labeling all vaccum and fuel lines before you start so your hands are clean and the labels will be read once your done (nothing worse than a greasy, illegible label to confuse matters once you're putting everything back together). Have several small boxes (shoe boxes are great) labeled "front" and "rear" ready first so that any parts can be easily stored, taken inside for cleaning, then set aside for re-assembly. Label your spark plug wires and buy new plugs (and wires too..why not) and a new thermostat so that you know that your repaired gasket/engine has no other points of failure. My manual shows 19 steps for removal and 19 steps for re-assembly but remember...one step could be more complicated than it reads and a more complete explaination of each step can be cross-referenced in subsequent manual chapters. Manuals are about $15 and only the simplest jobs (ie, window cleaning and tire inflation) should be attempted without a manual.

Remove the head and replace the gasket. No other way to fix it.

It's up there. If you have seepage at the head gasket, you need to replace it.

It will cost approximately $530 to replace a head gasket in your 1999 Chevy Cavalier. The head gasket kit will cost approximately $50 and require eight hours of labor to install.

Begin by removing the cylinder head from your Chevrolet S 10 four-cylinder engine. Remove the head gasket and clean the surface. Put the new head gasket on and return the cylinder head to its original position.

The intake manifold, exhaust manifold, and head must be removed. This is a major repair that should only be done by someone with the knowledge and skill to perform it correctly.

There isnt one. Replace the gasket. Additives are worthless. If you add something to your coolant to clog gasket tears then what else are you clogging?? Water pump, heater core, radiator? Replace the gasket.

Remove the cylinder heads from your Chevy engine. Remove the head gasket and clean the head gasket surface. Put the new head gasket on and reverse the process.

Under the cylinder head. Under the cylinder head. Unless you're talking about another gasket, but then you'd use the same logic.

To do it yourself, a couple dollars. The gasket is cheap. To have someone do it for you, they'll charge several hours and the cost will depend on their hourly rate.
