Exclamation The cause of the G2 blown Head Gaskets!

This will cover why the G2's have blown Head gaskets. The pics are from me and Action Jackson!
the egr valve pipe gets clogged after the back of the intake gets full of unburned oil and gases. This is suppose to be cleaned around 90k if I remember correctly if not I'm sure someone will chime in and correct that. so clean the egr pipe and the bottom of the intake and the back of the intake where the pipe meets it!

This in cause cylinders 3 and 6 on our engine to build up heat and after most inspections of bhg these 2 cylinders are where the gaskets break down not because of green coolant as they once were thought to have been the major cause.
Cylinder 6 pass side

Cylinder 3 Driver side

Also changing the pcv valve once a year will help, one step better would be replacing the lower plenum with the RL's.

I forgot to post pics of the pipe and I've already cleaned it so I'll have to post pics of that later own when I do the other pipe.

Only buy pulling the pipe off but it needs to come off in order to remove the intake. It's not hard. It's just time consuming.
