Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My head gasket blew and I'm buying all the
parts what all should I buy

1 Answer


Purchase a "valve grind gasket set" when the heads are off why not have a standard 3 angle valve job done on them.. call around find out who has a SERDI machine I know its not a VR4 but still worth doing the heads. I don't know the vehicles mileage but be sure to inspect all the rotational components on the '97 161hp SOHC engine. Go through the cooling system of course.
