Cracked Head and Bad Head Gasket
Dated: Jan 2008 with 169,000 miles

What should I do? Does this look like the $tealership trying a quick one on Past Owner?
is this a DIY? or should I give it up and run!

Thanks for your suggestions!
I'm not sure what the problem/question is. Are you thinking the car currently has a cracked head and/or bad head gasket? Or are you thinking it once did (at 169K miles, based on the receipt)? While I've never experienced a cracked head / bad head gasket the car has 19K more miles on it since the mileage stated on the receipt. Can a car drive 19K miles with a cracked head / bad head gasket?
