    For those of you who replaced a head gasket and later found you also had a bent rod what were the symptoms of the bent rod?
    For those of you who replaced your head gasket without a bent rod did you get better MPG or worse?

    No bent rod here, same mileage so far 2,000mi

    I knew I didn't have a bent rod because I checked each piston height and they were all identical before I put it back together.

    SM-G981V ?
