My little sister recently had her head gasket changed and this is the list I told her to make sure they replace with cleaned or new parts.
I made the list and realized I referred her to Gasket Masters and they would take care of her but for her reference, this is what I provided.
- Spark Plugs
- Water Pump (or replace the propeller)
- Cleaned to spotless or new EGR
- Cleaned Intake Manifold
Now depending on how bad the engine block is, you might need a new one, she was lucky, and as soon as she heard the engine rattle called me. The beauty of choosing Gasket Masters is if when they get to the head gasket the measurement of your block is off and needs repair… they come with multiple fresh engine blocks to install should your motor require it.
Gasket Masters will come to you at your place of work or home and 6-8 hours if I am not mistaken is how long they take to repair. When you call them, tell them The Black Jimmy Neutron sent you and they will take extra care of you and your Prius!
