1999 deville with 46 northstar tailpipe steaming and water in oil what sould you check?

Steam from the tailpipe, and water in the oil means you have a faulty head gasket. Not a good thing. The steam is the antifreeze/water coolant leaking into the heads (bad gasket) getting heated by the engine and coming out as steam. The water in the oil is the same deal, but it;s collecting in the oil so it isn't coming out of the tailpipe. You need a new head gasket. I promise.

Is it common for intake gaskets and head gaskets to blow on a 99 Tahoe?

From 1996 to late 1999 There was a problem with the intake gasket design on the Vortec engines. They have sents redesigned the gasket and now it does not leak as often. Intake Gaskets leaking is a common problem. Now the only time you have a problem with the heads is when the engine is over heated, and I mean HOT. Then the heads warp and the head gaskets leak or blow. Chevy just don't have problems with the heads on the V6 and V8 engines.

Thick white smoke is an indication of coolant entering the combustion chamber. More than likely you have a blown head gasket, especially if the engine has overheated recently. Stop driving this car as severe engine damage will occur due to coolant in the oil. The heads must be removed and new head gaskets installed. A major repair.

Heads do not have to be ground because they are aluminum. If you're taking both heads off then you need 2 new gaskets. It's not a bad Idea to replace both if one is leaking though because the other one might not be far behind.
