Head gasket
#1
Hi Guy's..

I've a 1.9 berlingo that needs the head gasket doing on it..

I'm a confident mechanic but never done a head gasket before and was wondering how big of a job is it?

also, I would like it for someone to give me an idea how long it will take me to do (so I can ideally plan some time to do it)..

Many thanks in advance

Straight forward gasket change by intelligent DIYer,allow 8-10 hrs.
However,in the motor trade we have sod's law.
Make absolutely the head is flat(skimmed),all surfaced are spotless,valve clearances are OK,New cambelt kit,water pump etc ready in back pocket.Flush cooling system & add good antifreeze/coolant.
Good luck.Confusedalut:
