Possible head gasket.... Worth it?
Here'* the story. My dad has a '98 Cadillac Seville STS and we're thinking the head gasket is bad. (Burnt coolant pouring out of the exhaust..) Now I was talking to Marty'* (OlBlueEyesBonne) brother, and he told me that they are known for weak head bolts, thus when they go to replace the gaskets, the head bolts are known to snap, rendering the motor useless. He also told me that they are very common for warping and cracked blocks. My question is, do you think it would be worth replacing the head gaskets or try to find another motor for it? I would hate to see him take it in and have to pay for work if there'* the chance that he will need to replace the motor anyway. Thanks for any help up front.
