Question, the head gaskets on the 2.5 engine...do they go out repeatedly or is it a once fixed, good for another 150K? Just wondering

It all depends really.

Depends on what gaskets you put in, and how bad of shape the cylinder heads are in.

If you buy the gaskets from the dealer they are upgraded gaskets and stronger then the originals.

If the heads are warped. I would recomend new cylinder heads. I've heard of others milling the heads and re-using them just to have them be too thin and once again over heat.

Some people just replace them once. Others have done it 4 times.
