Really I think this is the best way to go as far as working on the car yourself. Next upcoming purchase will be a quality torque wrench, and not one from Habor freight. I’m going to do the head gasket myself and save some money in the long run. These are $300-500 on eBay that’s expensive for a 13 year old car

Hopefully it’s in good enough shape it’s still useful. I had one for metro and Cherokee and VW Rabbit (got moldy and plan on buying another).
