I need to buy ahead gasket, how much is one n where can i source one at a good price?

The make of the car is a toyota IST.
Don't cut corners. Nenda Toyota Kenya pale Kírínyaga road uuziwe kitu safi na origi. Karibu nao kuna duka yaitwa Techpride, their stuff is good too. La sivyo cheki pia Toyotsu pale South C, they also have genuine Toyota parts at better prices than TK.

Nini kiliharibu hiyo nyingine?

how much does one cost bro.

Car was over heating and going off when driving... the sign for overheating would shw up then the car goes off. My mechanic told me my head gasket needs to be changed.

Going to purchase one tomorrow but want to be prepared with all the facts so i dont get ripped off.

Bei sijui mkubwa, hapo sitakudanganya. Nenda na chassis number upate the exact part.

Investigate your cooling system for leakages and/or blockage. The car shouldn't just overheat if coolant levels are ok and there's no blockage.

You need to have the cylinder head resurfaced and pressure tested if it is warped otherwise ata hiyo unaweka haita maliza siku mbili. It may be cheaper to just replace the engine.

There is this annoying thing called thermostat, it should be replaced ,ama radiator horse pipes are too old.

If the Engine is 1AZ, I would advise you to just buy a new one. The cost of repairs of the gaskets and cylinder head is almost the same as a new engine. (Engine is 30k). Plus... those repairs will serve you for a few days at best. Talking from experience.

what? how now? jeez thats darn cheap, at 30k it makes more sense to just buy a new engine every single time you run into problems. Means the cost of buying one single headlight for my small jalopy can buy me several IST engines :D:D:D

@introvert how true is this figure being floated around by this guy? cc @Nattydread
True.
Engine costs same as a tyre.. Hehehe..
Sadly, something as mundane as a bad radiator cap could have caused all this.
Some of these new engines don't take punishment too well.
