I went a bought a new coil pack for 70$ and a heli coil kit for 40$. A new head would cost me 455$ and I would be out a truck for awhile waiting for it to come in.
I'm going to go ahead and take the head off to make sure no debris got inside the piston wall and make sure the head is not cracked.
Anybody put a helicoil in there tacoma? If so what am I getting into? I can see that in one spark-plug hole there looks like a washer in the bottom to hold the spark plug in place and in the one tht blew out there is nothing. I don't Know what to think...
Any suggestions? If u have pictures could you post so I can see? Much appreciated!
After all this I still love my tacoma.
Thanks guys
