Liberty EJ25 head gasket replacement

Postby jtm » Thu Jul 30, 2020 7:08 pm

I'm about to do the headgaskets on my '08 liberty with the ej253 engine. I've watched the speed academy tutorial which is very detailed and done a lot or research but still have a couple of questions before I get started

1. Are the sti 11044AA642 head gaskets the correct ones to use for my engine? I only have a small leak with no overheating of the heads so I believe they should only need a very lite machine.

2. Does anyone have a link to a workshop/factory service manual specficially for an '08 liberty 2.5i? I've found some for north american models and some for other liberty model years but I think it would be best to get the exact one incase some of the torque settings or procedures are different.

Any info or advice would be much appreciated. Thanks

Thanks for the reply. I read through your guide which was very useful. Do you know if those ...642 mls headgaskets would be right for my '08 liberty ej253?
