months. The same happened again.

This time a new thermostat was fitted. Two months later same happened again.This time new radiator,sensor, checked water pump, ok, fan belt/fan o.

Two months later same happened again,This time a NEW head was fitted.

Exactly 58 days later back to head gasket is blown can anyone tell me what is wrong with my car Please

Hi Tom, do you think there is a problem with the engine block itself?
Did they use new cylinder head bolts? (they `stretch` over time)
Has the work been done by the same garage each time?

Just asking questions to try and think outside the box so to speak.
