We put a rebuilt engine purchased from a national company into our chev pickup truck. In under 1 year and 4138 miles the head gasket failed and caused serious damage to the engine. What could have caused this. I didn't overheat until the gasket failed and not knowing the problem, I kept the truck running to get it 10 miles home. The concern is; did the headgasket fail for some reason other than overheating as it overheated after failure of the head gasket. I'm confused.
Thank you for any help you can offer.
have the same problem?
