I blew the head gasket in my 1994 Toyota 4wd 22RE back in December headed to the hunting club. I just got it back yesterday from the shop. $1610.00 later it drives like new. It must have been losing compression for awhile since I would have to drop it in 3 rd to get over the mountain in Pike county on hwy 19. The gradual lose of power over the last few years wasn’t noticeable but now its back to normal I didn’t have to drop gears yesterday. I bought this truck in 1994, my wife would ask if I was going to sell it every time we got a new vehicle. I joked that when someone paid me what I originally paid for it I would sell. Lol. I paid $14k new Now Im seeing folks asking that for them. I guess I’ll be buried in it. Love my yotas. Now to get my 4Runner back in tune too.

Had a '93 back in the early 2000's as my first truck. Popped head gaskets left and right. My dad's '86 with the 22r went 400k on the original.
