Hey all! Well... It's about that time to replace the head gasket on my 05 DC. Wondering if anyone has a walkthrough resource (alldata, haynes, PDF, links, whatever). Couldn't find alot online. Pretty mechanically inclined, but would love to see what im getting into.

Thanks!

4.7 V8 ?

Either way, why do you think you need a head gasket?

Very rarely do head gasket failures are usually the result of other issues. Very rare can you just replace a head gasket.

I have a friend who let his Ford sit for a while with a bad head gasket and rust got all in the engine.

It is just hard to tell until you break it down.

Thanks for the reply. Yes a 4.7l

Have coolant pouring out the side of my block in the crack of the head. Ran a compression test at the radiator and spewed coolant everywhere from the same spot.

Hasn't broken through to an oil passage.
