As it's a 950, it's worth checking that trhe cylinder head nut TSB has been performed. On the early engines there was no washer under the head nuts - the TSB was to fit a washer and a different nut.

When my 950 had a blowing head gasket, the act of replacing and retorquing the nuts cured it.

Some people go as far as to recommend retorquing the nuts at every major service - I'm not sure about that one.
