Head gaskets on aluminum head diesels are subject to more stress than any other car. Any over heating will cause premature failure. The engines uses stretch bolts & they are designed to keep the head secure to block. Stress from combustion heat is a common reason for failure. Show me a car w/over 200k miles & most likely the h/gasket has been replaced.
