    Started missing and sputtering, then steam from the exhaust, now Mocha Latte' in the radiator...

    I just got the lower end squared away and apparently this made the top end yern for attention... :rolleyes:

    So, anyone know of a good shop in North Phoenix that can fix me up ???

    I don't think I should drive it far. I'm concerned the coolant leakage into the cylinder(s) may cause it to hydrolock... :eek:

    The tow bill will be far less than the cost of further repairs, for sure.

    Sorry to hear about your trouble.

    Why downgrade to half the performance for twice the price ?

    I had no idea that Land Cruiser headgaskets were platinum...
