Usually if the block cracks, it is due to the coolant freezing. You have freeze plugs that can protect it, but they dont always work. If you have ever let the coolant get weak, it may have froozen and you not know it.
As for the $6k for a rebuild. Geeze! I know the dealership wants like $2500 for the block, but I am sure you can find one a lot cheaper.
