If you need to repair the cylinder head of the engine installed on the car, remove it as described in the article "How to replace the cylinder head gasket VAZ-2123"

In most cases, repair of the cylinder head consists of lapping or replacing valves, replacing valve guides, replacing or grinding valve seats

In case of such malfunctions as a violation of the tightness of the channels of the jacket of the cooling system and warping of the mating surface to the cylinder block, the block head is replaced.

You will need: wrenches "for 13", "for 17", "for 21", a spark plug wrench, a screwdriver, round-nose pliers (tweezers), a device for compressing valve springs.

If there is a valve spring compression tool that differs in design from the one shown (for example, a screw screwed into the hole in the head of the block for the hydraulic support), it may not be necessary to remove the receiver.

For convenience, you can remove the intake pipe and exhaust manifold (see "How repair the Chevrolet Niva exhaust system"), as well as the rest of the hinged units removed together with the head, however, if repair or replacement of these units is not required, with sufficient skill it is possible to repair the block head without removing them.
