    Came home from a nice long week vacation. The 4Runners had been sitting and just hanging out. It had been running rough for a little bit but would come out of it after it warmed up.

    Hit the key and nothing but white smoke came rolling out the tail pipe and took about ten minutes to burn off all the coolant.

    I'll post the video up as soon as I can.

    Well it lasted 261,000 miles so I guess that is not to bad.

    I can finally join the blown head gasket family

    Need to pull the motor depending on what side. Mine was on the passanger side. I couldn't get the exhaust off. Might be able to undo the motor mounts and tilt the motor. But i pulled mine and sent the whole thing off to Shop to have it rebuilt and machined. $2200. $800 Master rebuild kit, rest labor + Machine work. Shave the headers and went ringed over. Mine only made it to 198,800K. @Ol'Blue is lucky!
