if the miles on the engine aren't too high, then just replace the head gaskets. if the whole engine is tired go ahead and swap out the motor. its a lot cheaper to do the gaskets then to buy a new motor.
No, they can be replaced with the engine in the vehicle, but it is not an easy repair.
well you dont repair the gasket itself you just replace them.
No reason to if the intake gasket is the only problem you have. If engine was running smooth and was not overheated then there is no reason to fool with the HEAD gaskets
old gaskets, replace asap or risk losing your engine or transmission or some other catastrophic repair
2.2L OHV or a 2.4L DOHC engine..... anyway,,,,, get a repair manual or go to autozone.com click repair info.
Remove spark plugs and crank engine to blow coolant out. Put plugs back in and start engine. Pull inside garage to repair, or leave radiator cap loose and take to mechanic to replace gaskets if engine is not overheating too quickly to get it there.
GO TO YOUR AUTO PARTS STORE AND BUY A HAYNES REPAIR MANUAL FOR THE CAVALIER. IT HAS PICTURES AND DETAILED INSTRUCTIONS. PROCEDURE IS DIFFERENT FOR EACH TYPE OF ENGINE
I payed my mechanic $1200, it was mostly labor. I think the gaskets cost $400. Due to the engine being a boxer, it has to be lifted completely to get to the gaskets. This is a labor intensive operation whether you do it yourself or pay someone..
First off you stop driving the vehicle immediately. Otherwise you will destroy the engine. If the repair shop is within a couple of miles from your home and the engine is not overheating drive it there for repair. If it is over a couple of miles have it towed. You will have to have the head/heads removed and the gaskets replaced. You may also have to have the head resurfaced or replaced. This is a major repair and is not cheap.
You cannot repair a blown head gasket, you must remove the heads and replace the gasket.
If you want to loose some fingers in the process just try that repair with the engine running. Otherwise the answer is a big NO.
For me it is. The person doing the repair has to take the engine more than 60% apart to repair it. It is likely that the cylinder head will need to be sent to a machine shop for repair. To do the head gasket on my car takes about $800 labour and $450 in gaskets plus any machine work.
You surely cannot expect to get an answer? Repair WHAT on the engine? What is wrong with it?You surely cannot expect to get an answer? Repair WHAT on the engine? What is wrong with it?
Valve cover gaskets are a very expensive repair if you can't do it yourself. To get to them, you have to take apart the engine starting at the top and work your way down to the cylinder heads. It is very labor intensive and the labor was around $400 while the part was only $20.
Take it to a repair shop.
If the Cavalier bleeder can not be removed with pliers, try a screw removal tool. The tool has angled threads. Slide it into the broken bleeder then turn it, the threads will grab the bleeder and should back it out for replacement.
The average cost to repair a starter is anywhere between $50 to $250 dollars. The starter is responsible for starting the car's engine.
WATER. This indicates a blown head gasket. Damage has been done to the engine in the form of overheating and the head gasket(s) have blown. Water therefor has leaked into the oil. Replacing the head gaskets is the way to repair this motor.
yes it will but it will keep taking oil and water the oil and water will mix. u can run it for a while but rather repair it otherwise u might cease the engine

2002 Grand Cherokee with the 4.7 V8 engine head gaskets replacement would run aprox $1500 to $1800 parts and labor depending on your location.
I sugjest going to your local library and loaning a Chiltons repair manual, i recently replaced all the gaskets on my 1997 Gmc Savanna. that manual has everything you need to know.
