last weekend when i returned from UK i thought its time to take the Prado for a spin... standing for almost 4 months,
connected the batteries, air in tyres, swing swing and off we went, nice 220km sunday drive to Noirmoutier-en-l'Île and back went fine,
stopped at home got out and gurgel gurgel, i rip the bonnet open and see the water res bubbling, #$#@#$#@#$ were a few choice words. but the temp is normal??
i had to go to Greece and Italy this week and got the neighbors son to pull it, they say its the head thats cracked at every valve GRRRRRRRRRRRR. was hoping head gasket.. i will be home tonight to view it.
Now to find a new head, looking on Flea bay complete head for 718.00 complete and oem approved?? http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/HILUX-3-0TD-1KZTE ... 45f2019edd
I will check what it will cost from Toyota but can not think it being less, are there any approved suppliers that i could try, speaking to JB the SA guru he said a while ago that he uses a Spanish one, has anyone here heard of it?
