Head gasket blowing is not normal. Need a clue as to what the 800 bucks went to doing, to know if related or not.

AND this may not be the issue causing the overheating...

Here in the US the NTSB can be contacted online or by phone. National Traffic Safty Board surely has a Canadian counterpart. They will have a list of TSB(technical Service Bullitins) and recalls.
