It could be that. I have seen this before on some 9000's. But especially on an 06 I might check the bolts in the "gable plate" (The aluminum plate on the back of the engine that the rear main seal is mounted in. I think it was 06 but may have been 07 when we had to change out some of those 30 torx headed bolts (6mm) in the gable plate with new bolts that were triagnulated self locking bolts. That would be easier if its that problem. The ones we changed re the ones in that area. This was no removal of transmission repair. Even if I thought it was the head gasket I might try to retorque the head bolts like the earlier 9-5's. Good Luck, Bernie
