Yeah guys thats what Im thinking :( i dont have the resources or expertise to change the head gaskets and get the heads machined and get the broken head bolts out lol cause the way my luck runs I guarentee ill break some, but ya Im selling it honestly. I thank you all for your help!
ok so now I have a place to do the headgasket and some help. i figured the car is worth it. Only paid 5 for it and the car is lodaded with leather and sunroof and pwoer seats plus everything works great and it only has 120k not bad for a 98. I just wanna know if my heads are steel or alum. Ive found on a few sites that it is steel. Just wanting to confirm with the experts. This is a 1998 3800 series 2 v6
My father in law and another good friend are very confident we can get it done within 8 hours. I guess theyve done plenty before. I've already got a haynes manual and have been looking it over quite a bit. It'* not going to be as bad as I had thought. Im just glad i dont have to get the heads machined. And that i have lots of help and a warm garage to do it in! Also be replacing the timming chain and seal. Im excited to do this and wont have to worry about anything for a good while! And I appreciate all your help! And I definetly will ask ya any questions that might come up durring the process. And I'll post my progress too.
i hope it works for you but thats not my luck. ive done a bunch of engine work on my firebird and other sbc'* and jeeps, so not my first rodeo. doing just my lim gaskets with new rad hoses, had help the first 6hrs and worked myself another 4 the next day. took quite a while to get the lim cleaned up
