I've got '06 CV w/150K on it and it has a blown headgasket.

The block heater fell out. I fixed that and at first it ran fine...a month later it was using a bit of anti-freeze. That amount grew, and now it uses a lot.

Can the headgaskets be changed in the car? I've head both ways.

That dern message went before it was supposed to.

What is the probability that the heads are toast, or that it can be fixed w/just the headgaskets being changed?

The kid said it did not get hot the 1st time.

Dont think that bbn it has gotten hot since either. We drove it for 6 months before it really started to use antifreeze, and it uses a gallon in about 25 miles now.

Carry out a cooling system pressure test which should show if any external leaks and then a block test for head / gasket test . Could check thermostat for sticking and radiator for possible partial clogged up due to overheating .Might need to bleed cooling system , if so would indicate head gasket problems . More than likely you will have to pull heads and check for damage . If so better to get heads pressure tested and skimmed if o.k and needed before replacing gasket .
