i'm thinking about changing my head gasket. Actually, I'm thinking about changing all the gaskets from the head up. Is this worth doing? my car is a 93 325i with 110K miles on it. The car makes some blue smoke sometimes and loses about 1.5 quarts of oil per 3K miles. When i ask is it worth it, I mean is it worth the effort to change all of these gaskets (i'm thinking of the ones that come in the head gasket set at pelicanparts.com or bavauto.com). I imagine that my car would be out of commision for about a week while i worked on it, which wouldn't be a big deal because i could ride my bicycle to work. I'm just wondering how high the effort-to-benefits ratio would be
Let me know your opinions if you've done this yourself before. Also, if anyone has a good write up on how to do it or can point me to the section in my bnetly manual that outlines the procedure, I would really appreciate it. the terms "head gasket" don't appear in the index anywhere. Thanks.
