Can you fix a head job (head gasket) on a deville 2001 successfully without having to change the whole engine because of and aluminium block. Is it safe to use blue devil head gasket sealant.
Do you
have the same problem?

You can repair the condition without engine replacement, it is not cheap, and requires special tools to prep and install the thread inserts in the block. I would not recommend any additives, it just leads to disappointment.
