Default Re: Head Gasket???

Might want to check with Satlite440 and get his opinion if 'moving on' is a better alternative to replacing the rear head gasket...that is...learn the probability that changing the gasket will resolve the leak in his professional experience. Could also be a crack in the head or block and he would know the probability better than the rest because of his experience. I have heard of no head gasket failures on the 3.6L.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Default Re: Head Gasket???

Thought I would report back on this. The endoscope is a nifty little tool. Used it a couple of times now. Anyway, I could see where the water appeared to be coming from the rear head gasket. Very small occasional bubbles. I ordered some of the GM “vegetable” tabs. Dropped one of those in a few weeks ago. For now, it’s working. Not sure for how long.

...
Kind Regards,
Patrick

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
