Re: Head gasket problem
probably you have a warped head or deck. did you get a valve job or take the head to the machine shop to be inspected? this is a must when ever you do the valve job. also replace the head bolts too. this is recommended when you buy the gasket for a reason. they do stretch sometimes. better safe than sorry. also i personally recommend dealer head gaskets. yes i know they are a whole 30 bucks more but i sleep better and my cars run for a fey years before i have to do them again...if i ever do. and of course what nothing shocking said is also true. as is the torque wrench you used. was the torque wrench calibrated correctly? has it been stored in a very well manner? or banged around in a tool box and dropped often? mine are in a foam padded drawer in my box with other sensitive tools
