This is my dealerships breakdown of my repairs. Wouldn't the head bolts fail to cause the gaskets to blow? Let me know what else I should do.
The truck was drivin while overheating, engine got so hot it blew the head gaskets dumping coolant into the engine and blew out the intake manifold seals. Will have to start with replacing the head gaskets on both sides, replacing the intake seals, and changing the oil. Will have to start with this repair then retest to be sure there are no other problems that are not showing up at this time since the truck is not running correctly due to the blown head gaskets. Will have to remove front wheels and sit on blocks to lower truck since it is lifted to be able to remove the front bumper to gain access to the engine and remove the engine from the truck for repair. Just let me know something at your earliest convience on the repair.
