UK Car Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
I can't see how they could give you a warranty without doing the normal necessities for an engine rebuild.
Ensuring the head and block surfaces are flat and correct finish is vital for head gasket reliability.
They clearly need to honour the whole repair.
Hope this helps.
I have seen many sloppy engine rebuilds before, from people I have worked with.
I would bite my tongue.
Headgaskets do not fail on their own.
Insufficient or incorrect torque sequence, incorrect surface finish or warpage beyond max spec (flatness) are the usual culprits.
Hope the repairer warrants the whole repair as they should.
To me, the whole engine should be removed for strip and repair, skim block and head as necessary.
