AnswerFuel is burning in the manifold after leaving the cylinder. Bad plugs or plug wires, too rich a fuel mixture, or overworking the engine with too heavy a load.

could also be clogged catalytic converter

Sounds like a plugged catalytic converter. Or muffler resonator assembly. Either way, your exhaust is not getting out of your tailpipe at the rate it was designed to flow. You will ruin your exhaust valves driving it this way. Very expensive to repair, better get this fixed.

How do you replace the head gasket on a 1987 f-150 6-cylinder engine?

disconnect battery, fuel lines, and harness from upper engine. disconnect the exhaust flange nuts to remove exuast pipe from manifold remove any and all brackets attached to head that will prevent it from coming apart from the engine. remove valve cover and remove rocker arms and push rods. remove head bolts and separate from engine. The head is heavy especially with the intake and exhaust manifold bolted to it. I would recommend bolting a chain to the front and back of head and use a cherry picker to get it out or if u dont a cherry picker have someone help you cause it is pretty heavy.
