How hard is it to change blown head gaskets on a 1996 Ford Windstar 3.8L V6 engine?

It is a big job. If you attempt it, get a manual from AUTOBOOKSONLINE.COM

The head gaskets must be replaced. This is a major repair that should only be undertaken by a professional.

Remove the head, Grind it flat and replace it using a new gasket.

YES. The intake gaskets have NOTHING to do with the head gaskets. It is a very common problem that the intake gaskets blow. It is not common for the head gaskets to leak unless the engine was over heated, and I mean HOT.

It will solve the problem. The 3.4 is notorious for poor head gaskets. You can replace the gaskets on the engine without replacing the engine, and that will solve the problem for quite a while. It will be much less costly than an engine replacement.
