Not a common fault. Mainly head gaskets are the common fault. Maybe if your head gasket went and coolant was getting into an area it shouldnt that might of been what caused the crack.

When putting the new head on get an AU head gaskit kit and that might solve your problem. AUs have metal head gasket. They are a direct swap too.

the cracking will be a result of a problem. it wont be the problem it self.
when you take into account you have done 2 in such a small time frame.

I would hazard a guess it is your cooling system.
