Gosh darn head gaskets
It looks like the head gaskets on the 4.2 are leaking again. It's been less than a year and under 4000 miles. When the engine is cold it's pushing a little bit of coolant thru the exhaust. After warm up it seems OK.
I don't know what to do next. I used the very expensive stretch bolts and composite head gaskets which I figured would be the last of it for a long while.
I don't know if I should try going another half turn on all of them, pull the whole shiz apart again and put in the same stuff all new, or go back to the steel gaskets and regular bolts. I know the heads are straight and the block is true.
I don't drive it all that much, but I would like it to be a bit more reliable.
OK stop laughing.
