the cost will vary, depending on whether you have a 4 cyl. or 6 cyl. engine (one head to do- vs. two heads on a V-6)

If you do much of the labour yourself and get a friend with a troque wrench to help, you should be able to do a 4 cyl. for as little as 400$ (that's even including Milling the head/new head bolts/and some new minor parts that are inexpensive and easier to replace once the head/throttle body/hoses are all unattacthed to do a head gasket job. You can probably get a 4 cyl. done for around 1000$ at a local garage(dealership will be around 1350$) A 6 cyl. done yourself should only be around 500$/local garage around $1100 and a dealership could be as high as 1650$. There are steps to make it cheaper i.e theehad might look okay and a friend or Mechanic might tell you that you do not need to mill the head (or check it for cracks- this depends on the severity of the ehead gasket ---bad leak or blow !!) The reason I know some of this is that I have been through it three times and have been able to keep the cost down by getting a friend's help, and once by doing almost 90% of it myself !!! p.s.-don't forget to get the intake manifold checked for cracks !! good luck!!!!!

It will take an experience mechanic approximately 8 hours to replace the timing belt in your 1992 Chevy Corsica. The 1992 Chevy Corsica does not have each timing chain, it has a timing belt.

A used head gasket is not worth anything, because it cannot be reused.

The side view mirror on a 1995 Chevy Corsica is mounted by screws. Remove the screws and panel for the mirror on the inside of the vehicle. Pull and replace the unit.

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.

there is no lower intake gasket, only a front and rear gasket

User Avatar

If you are sure that it did not freeze and crack the block, Then the intake manifold gasket is leaking. That is a common problem with the vortec Chevy engines. You need to replace the gasket with a factory Chevy gasket from the dealer.

The Corsica wasn't made in 1898. I think you have to slap it with the reins to make it go on that model.

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