Curious if anyone knows the reason that blown headgaskets/warped heads = new engine on these cars? I’ve heard it said over and over on these forums, but the only explanation that I’ve actually seen is that shops were seeing stripped head bolts after replacing heads and so they stopped wanting to repair the heads (customers would come back later and blame them for shoddy work). That doesn’t seem like a good enough reason to me - simply explain the risks to the customer and refuse to warranty the work.
Typically block is warped beyond tolerances.
