Symptoms Of A Blown Duramax Head Gasket
A blown head gasket can easily total out any vehicle, including a Duramax diesel engine equipped truck. However, an engine can be repaired with the correct parts and tools by someone who is any experienced mechanic. Some of the most common symptoms of a blown head gasket will include:
- White Smoke Coming From Tailpipe
- Unexplained Coolant Loss With No Leaks
- Milky White Coloration Of The Oil
- Engine Overheating
- Coolant Bubbling In Radiator & Coolant Reservoir
- Coolant Streaks Near Gaskets
What Year Duramax Has Head Gasket Problems?
It is often known that the 2004.5-2005 LLY Duramax Engine year models have temperature issues. This usually leads it to being the most prominent of the Duramax models for having gasket failures. Over the years GM has revised their head gasket design many times with each of these designs failing in their own specific way. So while the 2004.5-2005 models are the most well known for failure, all gasket designs for the different Duramax year models are susceptible to problems as well.
Are All Duramax Head Gaskets The Same?
The engineers at the Duramax factory actually used three different thicknesses of gaskets while assembling the engines. So naturally there are left and right gaskets, but there are also Grades A, B, and C gaskets. So the short answer is yes, all Duramax head gaskets are the same, but the thicknesses will vary from year to year. Also keep in mind that the left and right cylinder head gaskets are not interchangeable. If incorrect placements of the cylinder head gasket is performed then it will cause severe engine damage.
