im looking at buying a duramax. the guy sayes it has a blown head gasket and is pushing water out the overflow tank. my question is how prone are the heads to cracking or messing something else up besides just the head gasket.

Heads will most likely need decked and valves buffed. If you are doing it yourself they arent' that bad, but if you plan on a shop doing it plan on spending about $3500 by the time its all said and done.

leave that alone............that's the cheapest advice trust me on that..Look for a truck that at least runs,with the price of these things I would wonder what else is tore up on it....
