Being military and having done dorm inspections... we have literally had to discipline people for being as bad or worse than this woman and make them attend mandatory hygeine classes. Wish that more people could be forced to do this.

Like... pizza crusts in boxes growing black mold because they had been left there since the last dorm inspection, piles of dirty clothes, animals being kept illegally in tanks/cages that weren't cleaned, stains everywhere, **** swirls in the toilet bowl and dried urine all over the toilet. One kid had wadded up tissues all around/under his computer desk. I dont' even want to know...

Some things really just need to be lit on fire to be clean.

Well, this morning I reserved a trailer with Uhaul. Tomorrow my step dad will be hooking the stang up behind his Tundra and towing it up to me. I found a shop that said either A) for $10 an hour I can use a bay in their shop and all their tools to fix my car or B) I can pay them $650-$700 and they will replace both head gaskets and check to see if the heads needs resurfaced. That's EXTREMELY good pricing so I'm dropping the car off at their shop Jan 2nd. Option A or B is still to be determined.

I did get a goody or two for the car for christmas. Wife bought me a shorty antenna like hers.








My sister said once I finished getting the interior restored I'll want to protect it from the sun, so she bought me a pretty cool Star Wars sunshade.





And my parents got my wife and I his & hers license plates for the front of the car.






Unfortunately, that's really all the updates for now. I should be able to start making significant progress again in about a week.

Since it's a v6 shouldn't they both say "hers"?












Lol jkjk, it looks really good and those prices you gave are really good. Let us know how everything goes and what you decided to do. Id DIY personally vs paying $700 but that's if you know what you are doing and know you can get out of there in a day or two. However... there is something to be said for heaving someone else do it if the price is right.

I've done a few head gaskets on celicas and civics and integras before, and even assisted with a 4runner, but this one seems way more complicated. For one, there are two heads. For two, I printed off the alldata of what it takes to do it, and some parts of it are pretty complicated sounding. I have basic skills when it comes to working on cars.

The 4.0 heads aren't easy to work on and get set up properly once you are done. Plus, to do it you really need to pull the engine to get to the back of the passenger side. That's why if you are going to pull the engine anyway, just get a used one and pop it back in. The used 4.0's are plentiful and cheap.

Given the condition of that car I would bet that the engine has more problems than you know at this point - and replacing head gaskets will be the least of your issues. In fact, once they pull the heads they may find that it needs a lot more work than they quoted you so far.

Thanks for bringing the rear end part up actually. I didn't think about that. The rear noise she heard was unrelated I think, but regardless it'd be good to check.

No swap, rebuilt top end. Seems like the bottom end is pretty solid.

Having worked at a car wash in high school 10 years ago, I can appreciate the work you did cleaning this thing up. I just read this entire thread and want to see the story continue, lol.

I would go back and read the other posts, it will fill you in how it is mechanically. He's having some engine work done.

Lol, that girl is actually pretty cool, she used to work for Raceline Performance. Now she works for the shop called Mutant Motorworx and has been helping me get mine back together. The shop is awesome because they've let me do some of the work, then they do the harder stuff that I can't.


My wife does do work on the cars with me, but not much under the hood. Coming up soon here though we will be replacing the rear brakes on her mustang, which she has already said she wants to learn to do, and she wants to help me.

Well I went and picked the thing up last night, let it run for 10 minutes while I talked to the mechanic. Checked, no leaks or fluids so I got in and headed home. About halfway home steam was pouring from under the hood. I checked and coolant was pouring out. Unfortunately, it was dark so I couldn't tell where, but it looks like possibly the water pump. Not sure.

You just cannot catch a break with this car, can you? At least its probably just a gasket. Hopefully.
