Ok here is a thread linked with all my problems.

But now becuase of all the over heating the head warped because of the heat.

Now my question does re-surfacing the head fix the problem in the long run? Probably not right because its only an easy fix.

Now if that is your problem then it should fix it for the long run. Resurfacing the head, or milling as its called, will just cut a new mating face. In the process it takes out the warp. As long as you don't overheat the car again it should last.

Short of replacing the heads or resufacing there isn't any other way to go to fix warped heads. If you're worried about value of the car it won't hurt anything. Longevity wise its not gonna be an issue.

All you can really do is hope that the overheating issue is fixed. I think its safe to say that you know that if it keeps overheating no matter what they do to repair it then no part will really last. For now I'd say you're safe.

Frankly there is only so much that can go wrong on the coolant system, so I would think that they should be able to figure it out.
