Hi my name is***** will be glad to help. There is no way of saying that head gaskets fail often however it depends on maintenance and operating conditions etc. Test the cooling system for combustion gases using a block tester that you can buy from most parts stores with the dye. . At the same time it's a good idea to put a pressure tester on it. Reply back with the results and if we need to dig deeper.
