    1997 Land Cruiser with recently discovered blown head gasket at 225,000 miles. Still runs just fine, and no overheating (yet), but had my shop locally test and found gasket blown at cylinder #1 after engine was running rough and check engine light came on. They do good work, but $120/hr shop...
