What's your luck after head gaskets replaced?
Posted 07 December 2005 - 07:18 PM
I replaced the head gaskets on my 99 legacy GT with 2.5 DOHC it had 127000.
It now has 150000 and no problems.
I would love to hear everyone say that after the change to latest gasket design there is know issue. Could this be?
I love the car too much to get rid of it and also spent too much money to this point.

I put 130 000 km on my 97 OBW with no head gasket problems when I traded it. The 02 OBW I replaced it with went 23 000 km and started a minor head gasket coolant leak on both sides. Replaced under warranty at the Service Manager's suggestion, requiring no screaming by me. A year later I received the recall notice for the coolant additive to prevent the head gasket problem and had it installed. To date I have 111 000 km on my ride and am happy to report no head gasket problems.
