Interesting Statement

I was told by a Diesel Mech. 9 out of 10...that's 90% of all 6.0s will blow a head gasket...no matter what year it was

90% is a bit high I could see 50%

I'm with Dave. I don;t see it being THAT high. There's too many people here alone (myself included) that have not had any HG issues with the 6.0

Had to park it with some real diesel muscle....

his exact words were 9 out of 10 will blow a head gasket ..some at 30,000 miles some closer to 200,000...depends on how you drive...

That's what I thought 90% kinda high

Maybe in the early days..03 and 04 models..when all the problems....maybe...but there were way to many changes in 05-07 for that number to be that high
