I maintain my vehicle. I replaced the radiator in March. I felt like the car was running hot, but the gauges did NOT move. I checked the water and oil and it was fine. The next day I drove 5 miles on an errand and 5 miles back. My gauges were fine. I pull up to my house and steam is bursting out and water gushing out. I thought the radiator blew out because of the amount of water. I towed to the shop that fixed the radiator and the called to inform me it is a head gasket. How does this happen when you maintain your vehicle and why didn't the gauges indicate any sort of problem? It is not an expense I can afford, and I am not sure if it is worth fixing. FML

Pretty sure Jeep overheated when heater core let go. Never registered on gauge as such but both heads were cracked. Signs were air in the system, random multiple misfires, and dropping coolant levels.

I DONT DRIVE MUCH OBVIOUSLY. JEEP IS NOW 9 YEARS OLD AND I JUST HIT 25,000 MILES ON HER. BAM, HEAD GASKET BLOWS. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? IT NEVER OVER HEATED, NO WHITE SMOKE, NOTHING. I HAD MY OIL CHANGED EVERY THREE MONTHS THEN BAM ENGINE LIGHT GOES ON. I HAD IT CHECKED OUT TO FIND OUT THE HEAD GASKET BLEW. I WAS IN SHOCK.
ALSO I RECIEVED A LETTER FROM JEEP TELLING ME ABOUT A RECALL CONCERNING THE GAS TANKS AND THAT A TOW HITCH HAS TO BE INSTALLED. THAT WAS AROUND 4 MONTHS AGO. NEVER HEARD FROM JEEP REGARDING THIS ISSUE NOR DO I HAVE ANY TOW HITCH ON THE BOTTOM REAR ON MY JEEP EITHER. WHEN WILL THAT BE INSTALLED?? WHAT WILL IT TAKE FOR THEM TO DO THIS? WILL IT TAKE ME TO GET REAR ENDED CAUSING MY JEEP TO GO ON FIRE NOW AND KILL ME BEFORE THEY DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS?
ALSO WHEN I DRIVE MY JEEP AND SAY AM GETTING ONTO A HIGHWAY. AS I ENTER THE HIGHWAY MID GASSING THE JEEP FOR SPEED, BAM THERE IS A LOUD THUMP COMING FROM THE REAR AND AT THAT THUMP, THE JEEP HESITATES THEN LIKE KICKS IN SPEED WISE. ITS HORRIBLE AND IT DOESNT FEEL SAFE TO ME EITHER. I FEEL LIKE MY ENTIRE REAR AXIL IS GOING TO END UP FALLING TO THE GROUND OR SOMETHING CAUSING ME TO HAVE AN ACCIDENT.
