Well now it doesn't sound as good, but I think I will throw in a 180 Tstat for good measure as I know it will not help this problem, but to prevent other things from crapping out. Now im thinking if the heads are warped, would they have rectified that on the head gasket repair. Mind you this is at a GM dealer when the car was still under warrenty. If the GM Techs didnt fix the warping then I guess it may blow again.

I dont know man, its a tough call because now im trying to predict if the head gasket will for sure blow again. 2 times under 60,000 is a bit much. I can throw in a Tstat to prevent the other things but if that HG goes again then its better to just trade it in and get something else.
