can i just put head gasket on?

just bought a 2000 tacoma with
2.7 and head gasket is leaking.
has 240k miles.hasnt ran very hot on gauge,
can i just change head gasket and be ok?
or is that to many miles?should i just look
for a used low mileage engine?
how long do these 2.7 usely last?
also is this a common problem?
thanx for help.

It's best to have the head checked while you have it off with that many miles too. If it is warped, cracked or needs a valve job then you could be changing the gasket sooner than you would like.
