Is it a blown hg on a v6 or 22re ? If its an re you can do it yourself in a matter of a day even without much mech exp.  22re's are soo simple in design.  Plus there is tons of links to toyota factory service manuals out there.  If it its a 3.slow then a shop or someone who has done it before is best.  Even then its a total pain in the  :spankbutt:

I just finished rebuilding mine. Got most of my things from http://www.engnbldr.com/ . hes right down the street from me in portland but deals everywhere.

And i've never looked for it but there must be a writeup on a 22re headgasket between the low riders, off roaders, and clelicas

You can do it  :thumbs:


but if you really don't want to someone local up there might be able to chime in.

this kind of thread should be in the "state chapters" area so i'm going to move it there then you can share the link with others from washington.

ive said this several times in the past couple weeks not sure if you posted it or not but
there is absolutely NO DIFFERENCE between the celica 22R/RE's and the truck 4wd or 2wd engines.        the only difference was from 82-84 celica engines were EFI where the trucks didnt get EFI til 85,  but even though the 82-84 celicas had efi they had the same block / head and pistons as the 82-84 trucks

I'm in Alaska right now. I'd recommend Marqueen Garage on Queen Anne Hill if you're still looking for a shop.
Time to go wheelin!
