my 91 v6 toyota pickup still has gasket problems and ticking sounds after engine has been rebuilt.

Asked by Oct 04, 2012 at 10:20 PM about the 1991 Toyota Pickup 2 Dr Deluxe 4WD Standard Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Would still want to "toy" my truck up but not sure of what route to take.  I was told by many that the engine will always fail even after the engine has been rebuilt.  I don't have a lot of funds to spend but was hoping to do things slowly through time such as painting, lifting.  The engine seems to be a big hassle but this truck has sentimental value also.
