I am most likely going to have to have my 96 LX450 in the shop. I have 120,000 miles on the machine and would like to get this taken care of while it is down. I have a lender car for the next 10 days so now is best time.

I know to mill the head, clean injectors etc...but what else should be done at this point.

Quote is for $1700.00 but this includes head bolts which should be fine. The mechanic did not have a break down of what he intends to replace.

Thanks

Ok,
I know, search, search.

I have read and looked at lots of posts.
But I need to see if I can put a complete list together.

Belts,
Oil pump seal
injector cleaning
valve job
head mill
head gasket


What am I missing.

Headgasket plus most all of the "while you are in there" items including reworked head, oil pans and crank seal: $1424. Parts and machine work only. I did all of the labor myself.

Cost breakdown and parts list found here.

Always replace the head bolts. They stetch over time so should be replaced when rebuilding top half
