Re: Oh Where to Start- Tricky car questions

Head gasket for sure. If water is leaking through the head casting, sounds like a cracked head! Have you been over to www.dsm1eights.com? If a head is needed for replacement find a Cyclone head.

Re: Oh Where to Start- Tricky car questions

Well what I need at the moment is, a guide on how to change it, and any hints or tips to changing them would be welcome. What all "should" I replace and what all "needs" to be replaced?

Re: Oh Where to Start- Tricky car questions

Keep as much of it assembled as possible is the best tip. It's been sitting so long I would suggest replacing all the included gaskets anyways from the kit. SandCobra on here is another 1.8 guru, along with Mischif... Hopefully they will log in and give a few cents as well.

It's been outlined in several threads as well as one of mine but I'll sum it up for ya.

*Remove Alternator/ Power steer pump
*Remove Upper Timing Cover
*Remove exhaust manifold (should just rest against Rad Fan)
*Remove Distributor
*Remove Intake Manifold/ Throtle Body as assembly
*Remove Valve Cover
*Before Removing the cam gear set the crank and cam to TDC
You may wanna replace the timing belt while your in there. I had no need to as it was done by a motor shop for me so I took the short cut route.
*Apply Vise Grip pliers to center top of cam gear to hold belt to it.
*Remover center nut for cam gear/ let rest aside
*Unbolt head in steps followed in pattern from a manual
*Lift head out

You should now what to do from there..... Good tips are using a Phillips screw driver to get the gear/belt back up to the cam. Use Silicone sealant around the water port block off on the intake manifold. Use NEW HEAD BOLTS!!!! Apparently over on www.dsm1eights.org we had a discussion on who can pull a head the fastest and it was around 30 minutes for Mischif I believe. Make sure you check that head for cracks before reinstall.

Re: Oh Where to Start- Tricky car questions

You are also running into some more problems with the head gasket being blown. With water getting into the oil, your bearings could be starting to rust, or rusting out. I went to go buy a 3000gt VR4 that had the same problem. But I took it to 3sx to have them look at it, and sure enough the bottom end bearings were on their way out.

Re: Oh Where to Start- Tricky car questions

Theres no water in the oil, I havent driven it really 15 to 20 miles most sense I owned it, and no signs of water intrusion other than the cylinders.

Re: Oh Where to Start- Tricky car questions

Wipe em down with DW-40 before putting the head back on.

I think it might restrict the airflow so proper measurements are recorded. I noticed it's a real POS thing!

Re: Oh Where to Start- Tricky car questions

I agree, restrict and direct the air for best possible accurate measurement. The manufactures are not as stupid as people try to make them sound.

Re: Oh Where to Start- Tricky car questions

OK, here is my parts list so far.

1. Nippon Reinz head gasket set part #W0133-1619589
2. OEM long life timing belt A and B
3. OEM tensioners
4. RTV gasket sealent

Where can i get some good studs, or should i just get new bolts?
I also got my haynes manual today, and I have new radiator hoses and fuel filter on the way.

Also i opened up the glove box today, and found lots of oil change records every 4000 miles but it was usually penzoil. It had transmission work done, and the man kept the car fairly maintained, that doesnt mean that he drove it right though.

Re: Oh Where to Start- Tricky car questions

OOOHHH the joys of buying a used DSM! I've had to do a lot of work on mine since I bought it but the head gasket has always been fine.

Good luck with the repair, the 1.8's are pretty reliable once everything is set to go. I beat mine up pretty badly and it just takes it and asks for more. Might also want to check out the Chilton guide, it might have some better, more specific information the Haynes probably doesn't have.

If the Haynes states to use new bolts, do it. I probably would anyway but I don't know for sure.

Re: Oh Where to Start- Tricky car questions

Always buy new head bolts when you do a head gasket. I used the old ones and 13,000 miles later it blew again.

Re: Oh Where to Start- Tricky car questions

If your looking for studs, call ARP direct. They know thier stuff and can cross refrence you a good bolt or a stud kit. I only use Fel-Pro gaskets, I wouldn't use anything else. Also while at it, replace the fuel injector O-rings and make sure they are not cracked/ broken and your running the White/Translucent Top 210cc variations. If your looking for a bit of flash.... The N/A 3000GT's run Green Top 210cc injectors with a billit alloy style body. Soak the manifolds in some cleaner, cause they tend to get very oily inside if your not running a catch can.

Re: Oh Where to Start- Tricky car questions

Alright well, I got a compression test done today, sadly the results are very nice. 100, 45, 45, 180 # 1 - 4. just doing the test caused the oil to get milky so no more turning over until the head is fixed.

Also, I will try to get some head studs and I know the subjects come up 1000 times but GTA says Felpro others say OEM I have the oppertunity to buy a upper end gasket set, this includes injector o-rings, head gasket, valve cover gasket, exhaust gasket, intake gaskets, and new valve seals. Maybe even lash adjusters cant tell by the picture but I will upload it and let yall see the set. Also the Timing belts and tensioners come in another set both A & B belts.
