    Girlfriend nearly ran the LX450 out of gas - now misfiring

    Now, after putting gas in the tank, it sounds like it is misfiring on one cylinder. Is there any reason these things might be related? We've only driven it a few times .25 mi to the store and back since then. Kind of afraid to drive it farther. Thanks

    head is off...what else would I need to do to pull the engine too?

    Head gasket blew. 286k miles. In my other thread you can see that the block surface is rough. I know to be on the safe side I should have the block surface milled too.
