Bad Head Gasket?

I know I am probably answering my own question but my brothers 02 Laredo I-6 engine is leaking coolant out of the tail pipe. Am I correct in assuming he needs a new head gasket?

Most probably a head gasket or a cracked head.

Re: Bad Head Gasket?

There was a problem with the "339" casting heads cracking and I am pretty sure his falls in the years that head was used.
