    Cooling system maintenance is the most important point. Green antifreeze must be changed every two years and pink antifreeze must be changed every 5 years. VERY important!

    Try to verify the cooling system has been serviced properly. And walk away from any Northstar equiped car if you cannot verify this information.

    Cooling system neglect almost always leads to head gasket problems. Caveat emptor.....
