  • 1998 DODGE DAKOTA

A friend of mine recently had a water pump go out on his Dakota(2.5l magnum) ~100,000 miles) after his dad drove it about 15 miles the head gaskets were blown, it failed pressure tests, so his brother started to replace the gaskets when I went to help he had one already done so I finished the rest but I never really checked the other one now the engine is running but kinda rough so im wondering if it could be that he did something wrong(which I doubt) or if there may be a cracked head
from his dad driving it on bad gaskets also his check engine light was been on since the repair and that runs rough when warm

The heads could be warped or cracked, check that over first.
