2008 overheated, coolant in #2 and #3
New user needing some help.
My son's 08 overheated, lost most/all of the coolant. We bought it used and the failure appears to be from the previous owner using JB weld to repair a radiator leak. The repair just failed and dumped the coolant rapidly.
There is coolant leaking into #2 and #3 cylinders.
I am new to repairing these engines.
My questions are:
How well does the head (and the block) hold up to overheating on these engines?
Is it even remotely possible that simply replacing the head gasket (and I would assume that machining the head would also be required) would resolve the issue or is it a high likelihood that I will need a new head?
