: Head gaskets?

03-16-08, 10:56 AM
I have a 6.0 ltr, and I keep have people telling me that caddy's are notorious for head gaskets leaking and the very pricey repair expenses. Is this prone to all Caddy engines or is the Northstar or Vortec any more prone to this problem?
Any well know engine problems with the motor?

I am considering getting the extended warranty on the truck, just in case.

Anyone have the problem?

Ha Ha. Don't worry about it. Just the Northstars. Mainly '93-'99.

As said some of the Northstar engines had that problem, the 6.0 is not a Caddy engine, it's a GM engine made for trucks, have not heard of any head gasket failures, there maybe some like with any engine, but the 6.0 is a good strong motor.

extended warrenty is good for the drivetrain though. Trans, differencial, and transfer case. If you are planning on keeping the truck for a while I think it would be a sound investment.
