Would You Do a Preventative Headgasket Change on a 3.8L '96 with 60k mi. ?
'96 3.8L engine owners who have replaced their headgaskets, knowing what you know now, would you wished you changed the headgaskets to the improved Fel Pro ones ahead of time or waited until they go?
Mine has 60,0000 miles on it and am considering changing the headgaskets with the newer Fel Pro ones, and better bolts.
When did your's go, and do you feel that 60k mi. is too early to worry about them?
Coolant has been changed at proper interval, along with radiator, before it overheated so as to avoid any headgasket issue.
Read all the threads with headgasket and the 3.8 and not certain what percentage have a problem for the '96 3.8L's and at what mileage they have a problem.
Any insight from those with experience('96-'97's) would be appreciated.
