Did this video help you?

Guillermo Garcia: Is the procedure similar on the 2.4? Or is it going to be a more difficult job?

Josh Tru: Great video only one I have seen that explains what to do

Michael G: What a weird gauge cluster.    I mean, yeah I get it was a no frills commuter, but how much extra money would it take to make that crap symmetrical lol

George Kinal: The middle part, where the head actually gets removed, is covered at the end only briefly and as an afterthought. Too bad, otherwise pretty good video. Thanks.

joeandgod1: I am in the process of doing this right now, can you tell me if you had to take off the steering pump bracket? Something is holding it on the passenger side.

John Kerns: This was the best design of cavalier ever made!!!!

CLOPEZ805: the video is bad man you don t show anything if you are going to post a video a lease do it right 

VWL EL: Thanks

Joe G: Do you have to rotate the engine to TDC before removing the head?  I didn't see you remove a timing chain or anything similar to that....

Mr. Nationwide: Overhead Valves?
Has Chevrolet ever had SOHC or DOHC?

REDPWR4EVR: is it still holding for you?

Jim4575: As far as cost it starts with $850 plus HST in labour plus you have to be hopeful none of the bolts are rusty and break. Could goes a high as a $1000 . Great video , I think it's more for the mechanically minded to tackle but the Chilton or Hayes manual can help . I've used the Hayes , nice to have.

josh neves: Your definitely right about that bolt having a nut under the alternator I had to change my alternator three times thanks to pep boys piles of crap I bought a alternator from napa n now its perfect

Jason Holdinski: Two beer job haha

evilcowboy: I just wanted to let you know I did the head gasket and because of a cam shaft failure I am having to redo it again (had to pull head bolts). So I am going the Victor reinz route this time. Seems their gasket is much more thicker than fel pro. I also found loosening the water pump to drain coolant is a bit more controlled and quicker on these engines. By draining the rad from the petrooster it like to hit the engine cradle and go everywhere. It's odd but works a bit better.

brandencarey: can anyone tell me were the casting number is located?

richard stasko: should always flush motor afterwards, bc if oil and antifreeze mix its still in engine and will ruin new gasket. and should flush coolant if not replace the rad.

TheSlow262: I had to do a cavalier with the same engine the cylinder head was cracked.There was never any oil in the coolant or coolant in the oil.But it did leak compression through the expansion tank.The customer bought a refurbished cylinder head and I fixed it.the absolute best part is that this engine has the cam in block.easiest head gasket I've done

dnl5649: I hear Need You Now playing in the background...Perfect car-fixing music! I always listen to some good 'ol country when I fix things.

REDPWR4EVR: no idea what the casting # was, push rods were all same length though, had do remove power steering pump, but did not need to unhook hoses, just take bolts out. did this three years ago and never touched engine again my brother just sold the car though.
