Yes, the exhaust manifold on a 99 Chevy S10 2.2 will need to be be removed during the blown head gasket repair.

To replace a blown head gasket on a 1998 Chevy Lumina, it would cost between $18 and $174. This depends on the brand part and any labor costs.

$100.00 if you do it yourself, $1500.00 for a mechanic to do it.

No not hardly. The only thing that stuff will do is stop up your heater core and radiator. They have never made anything in a can are bottle that would fix a blown head gasket.

you shouldn't have to change them unless they are leaking, blown, or you take the heads off for a repair or rebuild

You do not repair a head gasket you replace it with a new gasket which requires removing the head.

the total cost to repair a blowen head gasket on a 96 cavalier is around $700-$800 total at most shops in good luck.........

Ours is blown too and one repair shop said up to 1500 i think and the one we bought it for said around 750

The only repair is to replace the head gasket.

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

the local shop wanted $1400. DIY cost me about $700 for gasket set and having heads checked.

some times it all depends on where you live other wise i have heard of them costing anywhere from 300 to 800 hundred dollars

You have a blown head gasket or a cracked head.

Bad plugs or plug wires. Blown head gasket or burnt valve. A compression test will eliminate burnt valve or blown gasket.

This is caused by a blown gasket that allows coolant to escape. Does your engine smoke sometimes when theirs coolant? If yes, then it's definitely a blown gasket.

They only Head Gasket I had to replace was on a Chevy Malibu 1999. Cost me about $1400

General condition of vehicle? Can you replace vehicle for the amount of repair? Do you like vehicle?

Bad plugs, or plug wires. Blown head gasket, or burnt valve. If you are loosing coolant with no apparent leak you may have a blown head gasket. Sweet smell at the exhaust is another sign of blown gasket. If none of that applies, replace the plugs and go from there.

The antifreeze in the oil is a dead give away that the head gasket is blown. Make sure you send the heads out to be checked so they are not warped.

Coolant overflowing from a 2003 Cavalier overflow tube usually indicates a blown head gasket. Check the cylinders for proper compression to confirm a blown gasket.

you probably have air in cooling system, which is probably caused by blown head gasket(s). Head gasket and intake gasket on these engines are notorious for failing.
