  1. Avensis T3-X 2.0 Petrol 2005 1AZFSE 108 miles Head gasket failed and it appears the thread of one of the headbolt holes has been stripped causing this. Keen to hear if anyone has had a go at using timeserts or helicoils to repair this before. Or if I'm simply better to bite the bullet and try a and find a recon engine. Mechanic didnt notice the thread was stripped until they went to fit the new gasket and torque down the (skimmed) head. So now im looking at a bill of replacing a gasket, skimming the head and possibly a new engine. Any advice much appreciated
