TIP, don't attempt this yourself, way too hard for a novice, plus the head will have to be checked for cracks and then surfaced to make sure it is flat before installing the new head gasket kit.

Put the tools down and back away from that car. You will need someone with way more experience than you to do this repair correctly.


Tow or drive to the mechanic. Not a do it yourself kind of job!
