How hard is it to change blown head gasket in a 98 v6 3.0 OHV ? Would it be easier to pull the motor and replace. Grey milky stuff leaked onto the exhaust manifold & caught on fire???????

It would be easier to swap the engine, and you can find them really cheap too.

To clarify, the head gasket job on that engine is about 12 hours of labor vs 6-8 to swap the engine (if you do so by dropping the k-member)
