CRACKED HEAD

2002 Chevrolet Avalanche • 167,000 miles

Cracked head on my 2002 Chevy Avalanche. Been in the shop for 2 weeks. Mechanic said they just got the heads back from the machine shop. Why would they send new heads to the machine shop?

I took the vehicle in for repairs after I thought the head gaskets went bad. Upon inspection the dealer told me it was a cracked head, referencing a TSB.

I was shown the cracked head and told them to get new ones. Now almost 2 weeks later I am being told that they won't have it done for a couple more days because they just got the new heads back from the machine shop. Why would they machine new heads?

That doesn't make sense unless the valves were lapped in by them.
