I'll keep it short and sweet. 2004, 61K, head gasket gone. Bit of a bummer but in my opinion one of those things that can happen at any time and on any car
However, while the head is off, I reckon that should a-
change the valve stem seals (may help the oil consumption a bit) and b-
Do the timing belt as there is only 11K to go anyway. Anything else (within reason) that should be done while in this state of limbo?
Secondly. I may change the car later in the year anyway. Given that I have done the stat, wishbones, front shocks, rear trailing arm and exhaust flexi section is there in reality anything else that can go pete tong and if I do sell it, what would a fair (current) price be. Ireckon about £4K given that the maintenance record is complete and thorough.
What would you guys do in my shoes??
