the head gasket went out, I took the head into the machine shop and got it resurfaced they also did a valve and exhaust guide job on it. I bought the timing belt kit with the water pump.

Asked by Jun 11, 2015 at 02:20 PM about the 2006 Dodge Stratus SXT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I also purchased the whole head
gasket set with new bolts .  
Someone is telling me that because
the top end of the motor is new it's
going to cause the bottom end to go
out, is this true? It didn't use oil
before we tore the motor down.
