Bought my 96 FZJ80 about a year ago for 4k. I have thoroughly enjoyed it as a daily driver and adventuremobil. Now I need to give it the TLC it needs. I have considered paying someone to replace the head gasket. But I want it done with care and detail, which it seems like the area I live in may be lacking. I am now considering doing the job myself, but I have never ventured into mechanics. I do like to figure things out, but don't want to get in too far over my head. I currently am blowing smoke when I turn the truck on. I am also burning/losing oil between oil changes. The oil light stays on. Always has... Looking for advice on where to start? I would probably get parts from wits end, unless someone else has a suggestion. I would also like to replace other maintenance parts while I'm in there. Looking for experienced advice on what you would start with. I want to keep the 80 running. I am located in Johnson City TN and am willing to drive to a mechanic who knows what he/she is doing.
