Gaskets

Q:     I blew a gasket in my 2000 V6. Anyone change their gaskets or been deep in the engine that far? I have been told that the torque bolts have to be replaced as well for they are a onetime use only thing. Is that true ?

Ira Mendoza

A:     The easy answers: You can buy complete gasket sets that will have everything you should need to do the job (you’ll have to remove the intake to pull the heads anyway). Whether or not they have the bolts included depends on the brand but they are available separately. Yes you should let a good machine shop check the manifolds and especially the heads. They may advise resealing the valves as well. Unfortunately right now your guess is as good as mine as far as what the problem is. It could be a lot of things basically. You say it’s losing power but is there any smoke from the exhaust? Can you smell anti freeze in the exhaust? Is it over heating?
