    Default Help. The parents broke down near Kokstad with a blown gasket (Prado KZTE)

    Hi All,

    My folks broke down outside Kokstad with what seems to be a blown gasket. They have been towed to the local Toyota dealership and work is planned to commence tomorrow. I thought I would ask on here if anyone in the area could suggest a better place to have the vehicle repaired?

    Thanks in advance.

    Be careful, the KZ-TE likes to crack its cylinder head and no amount of new gaskets helps for that.

    + 1

    It will be the head which will be cracked.

    You need to get hold of the 908882 AMC head. Any decent Toyota indi should be able to do it.
    Get new bolts as well.

    In my experience what finally kills the kz-te is the viscous fan , silicon oil degrades and you lose cooling when stationary, or going slow (long queues, uphill, crawling etc).

    Good luck

    Supposedly some after market heads are thicker and a decent amount stronger than a toyota head.

    If it's a 1kz with a turbo get yourself an intercooler and egt guage
