Always cheaper to fix.  A $500+ a month payment will do a lot of repairing and maintenance to a older truck..

Bofire - I do also want a new truck :) with 4 kids it would be nice to get a quad cab. Also, my 97 truck has plenty of other issues.

slowhand - A tundra is what I have been wanting since before I even got my current truck :) I have been looking at used Tundra's on Craigslist.

Lots of YouTube videos show how to repair this really easy.

Had the same thing happen to my plymouth neon. Cost me around 40 bucks for the sav-a-thread kit, loctite, and new plugs. The tow bill was 350, aluminum heads suck.

Now then, get your equipment—your quiver and bow—and go out to the open country to hunt some wild game for me.  Gen. 27:3

Plenty of vehicles with aluminum heads and no issues. It's an issue of how much material they're threading the plugs into.
Too bad the tow bill was more than any neon is worth.

Do not use this, in my experience (having repaired 3 vehicles that repaired there own with these) they do not work
First off the one pictured is incorrect for your vehicle, Second off the threads in the head are what is damaged and the insert shown here does not address this problem correctly. The way i suggested earlier in this thread is the best way i have found to do this repair, but hey what do i know compared to the armchair huntwa mechanics?
To hunt and butcher an animal is to recognize that meat is not some abstract form of protein that springs into existence tightly wrapped in cellophane and styrofoam.

I think you will have better choices over the mountains. I have been looking for a truck since March the SE corner thinks their trucks are worth a lot more than kbb and nada that's for sure.

I have the luxury of not being in a huge hurry so I am sticking to my budget. In fact I have seen my same truck that I bought in 2011 with a higher asking price than I paid back then. My truck is 20 yrs old.

I'm a Toyota fan. The prices on used ones are pretty high. The Tundras under $12k are gonna have a ton of miles.
