  • No one enjoys having car problems--even those of us who claim to enjoy working on cars and repairing them. The last thing we want to do is be forced into working on our cars. We can schedule upgrades and maintenance at our convenience, but a car problem means having to drop everything and change your plans to make repairs. Sometimes a car problem can be as simple as replacing a burned out headlight bulb. A quick trip to the parts store or even Wal-Mart and you have part in hand and the job done in a relatively short amount of time. No muss, no fuss, and your weekend of holding the hammock down with your backside is spared. But sometimes a car problem arises that just can't be accomplished this quickly, and though the job has to be done, it is dreaded every minute until the car is running again. Head gasket replacements are right at the top of the list when it comes to dreaded repairs.

    Robert Comments: I have a 95 M3 i am finishing a head gasket replacement on but before i took it apart i could not get the TDC pin in the flywheel to lock so i marked ot and then took everything apart
    now i am putting it back together but am worried about not getting the bottom end at official TDC, any suggestions? I have checked the marks line up but am scared i could be off a couple degrees and have the timing off. No piston to valve contact but i am being overly cautious since the pin cannot lock it to TDC it locks about 90 degrees away from TDC

      Followup from the Pelican Staff: I would use a small round wire brush to clean the transmission hole for the TDC pin. That is the only way to be sure it is lined up. It's common for the hole to corrode, making it hard to get the pin in. - Nick at Pelican Parts  

  • Gary Comments: How long should the total head gasket replacement job take, and what would be a good price to have a garage do it.

      Followup from the Pelican Staff: I'm not sure, it took me several weeks to complete, working a few nights in my garage, and completely documenting the process with photos. I would call around to a few shops and see what they have to say. - Wayne at Pelican Parts

Head Gasket Replacement Procedure - BlueDevil Products

If you have a V6, V8 or boxer engine, getting to the head gasket can be significantly more complicated. In these type engines, you actually have 2 head gaskets, one on each side of the engine. If you’re replacing the head gasket on your vehicle you should always replace both of them to make sure your engine stays balanced. Also, since you already have the majority of the engine taken apart to replace once gasket, it is cost effective to do the other one at the same time. With a “V” style engine or boxer engine, head gasket replacement costs can be 2 to 3 times the amount simply due to the extra labor associated with getting to the head which is more inaccessible on these vehicles.
