Question about 1990 Toyota Pickup
My 1990 toyota pickup has over 200kmiles. It just passed smog 2 weeks ago but last week the rear freeze plug (I'm pretty sure) started leaking. Is it time to replace the engine with a used japanese engine? I could probably replace the freeze plug myself but don't know if it's worth it? Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
200k, congrats! I imagine you're asking this question because this freeze out plug is probably not easy to get at. I am guessing the truck has been well maintained to reached it's 200k milestone. I think I would replace the plug, as the engine seems to be humming along nicely. If you purchase a used engine, you may be inheriting a new set of problems. I'd go with replacing the freeze out plug, it's a heck of a lot cheaper than a motor swap. GOOD LUCK! countrycurt0
