Question about VO6 recall
I just bought my brother in laws 94 4X4 SR5 Pickup with a bad motor. He had taken it to a mechanic who I suspect knew nothing about V6 engines, and was told the engine was shot. They took off the cam gears, left valve cover and removed the cam. Now after reading this forum I suspect that it just blew the head gasket. I just called Toyota and they indicated that the VO6 recall was not done on the tuck and that I should contact my local dealer. Now my question?? If anyone has had this recall done, should I try to reassemble the engine or just make sure all the parts are there and hope for the best? The truck has 225,000 miles and is in great shape, so if I can get it fixed or even get a new engine this will be the best $500 I ever spent.
