    Take care of your cooling systems and don't overheat the engine.

    Playing around in Alldata Saturday night at work.

    Head gasket replacement on the 2.7 = 19.4 Labor Hours.

    For an $86.86 part.

    Oh..no no no. Truck is just fine.

    Just looking at the diagrams of the 2.7 and got wondering how much crap was involved in a HG job on it.

    Check the hours to replace the entire engine assembly, I bet it's less.

    But costs more for the part, Thats if toyota will even sell you a brand new complete engine.
    I use to be a service manager and Honda would only sell parts to the engine you couldn't buy a whole engine. Piece by piece it was about 7 grand for a complete engine.
