: northstar extended warranty

08-09-04, 05:09 AM
i love/hate these engines. got a 97 deville that is losing coolant, and head gasket is strongly suspected. looking to dump this one and buy a 99 deville with under 60k miles. looking to buy extended warranty to protect me from this again. question: in reading the fine print on coverage, i see that "gaskets" are not covered on most "except" in the processs of repairing another failed part. how much fight would i have with underwriters if i have another gasket fail. my arguement is that it is the head bolts that are failing to hold the head on tight causing the gasket to fail. any pros out there come across this? thanks
