Welded Cylinder Head Stronger Than New?
Don't think i would have bought a previously cracked and repaired cylinder head to install on a customers car.

Hello everyone i would like you to meet seller where I recently purchased a cylinder head. My friends 1997 Saturn SL2 had the typical problem that the Saturn 1.9L SOHC has where it cracks and leaks engine oil into the cooling system.

Seller takes these cracked heads and does a repair where there is some welding involved. This i was told by seller makes them stronger than the factory head. Great! This sounds just like what i am looking for. I proceeded with the replacement and shipped them back my core head. The car ran great! Changed the oil and flushed the cooling system 3 times to remove the oil that was left in the cooling system from the previous head. I bought their head gasket set as well with head bolts.

Delivered the car back to my customer and everything was fine. 6 days later i got the call that his car was doing the same thing again and it was low on oil. I began to contact seller. I started my claim within my 30 day limit but it sounds to be of no avail.


I did a video on this current condition and put it on YouTube. It is what it is i am no video pro.
