Why would my gasket blow without no warning of it over heating, only 67000miles on 2006 Scion xB

I didn't have any warning lights go on and Ive never had problems with it. One day I feel a loss of power( was going up hill) then big clouds of white smoke. Shouldn't there have been any signs? How much should the repairs cost?

That mileage is really low, I've never seen problems with the ones we work on. Has it been diagnose for sure as being the fault? I wonder is the temperature warning light working properly or what component failed to cause the gasket to fail.

Yes I had it checked out, I did get an oil change 2 miles before it blew. The same place that changed the oil, worked on it for a few hour to figure out the problem. I know that the oil filter was loose , so I thought they were at fault. They spent a few hours on it and said # 1 & 2 gaskets were blown. How could this happen? They said no water was in the engine. They started it up and said it didn't start right away, but when I got in and started it there was no problem, and all the lights were off( cvs, ect.) I'm not sure where to go with this.
