Well, after just spending $1000 last month to have my timing chain tensioner replaced, my Explorer just blew a headgasket. I have read about it, and done headgaskets on other vehicles, but I was wondering if anyone knew if there is a write up posted anywhere with step by step instructions on removing everything with pictures. I was also wondering if anyone knew and could tell me roughly how many hours the total job should take?

The shop wants a ton of money to do the headgasket, and I have another vehicle so I would rather do it myself, save the money and have the satisfaction of having done it.

Thanks in advance for any help!!
