What's your luck after head gaskets replaced?

Recommended Posts

I am interested in hearing from people that have replaced head gaskets. How is the engine doing?

 

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.

MDW25gt,

 

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.

97 OB. HG's failed at 260k km. Replaced. Con-rod failure one day later. Short block replaced. That was April 2002. Everything is still running good right now (knock wood) at 470k km (210k km later).
