REPLACE HEAD OR ENTIRE ENGINE

1998 Cadillac Deville

Engine problem
1998 Cadillac Deville V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 137000 miles

My 98 cad is blowing a lot of white smoke out the exhust and I lost a lot of water. The GM repair place said I had either a blown head gasket or cracked head. They informed me that it would be better to replace the engine because of problems with removing head bolts, etc.
Is this normal proceedure or can heads be successfully R& R?

They just dont want to heli coil the head bolt threads.
Even know a Chevy dealer is GM the dont work on caddies that much if at all, I have done this repair many times, but the heads need to be ck'ed
