Well if you dont know what your doing, I wouldnt suggest doing it yourself. But your going to have to remove the head to get to the head gasket. Once there, peel off the old head gasket, then take a razorbladeand scrape off the old sealer, and gunk around where the head gasket was sitting so youll have some clean metal to bond the new headgasket to. Then put some sealent around the block, and place the new headgasket where the old one was, let it sit for a bit, make sure its on there good and put the head back on.
Drain the oil before you do this.
