The head gasket job might not have been done properly. Were the heads machined?


I'm with Tom on this one. If it was done at a shop take it back and have it rechecked.

Thanks folks, no it wasnt machined it was so obvious where the gasket was blown didnt think it necessary. Nobodys fault but my own. Lessons learned.
