i have two vehicles: '02 Sube Outback Sport and '98 Corolla. I’m about to do a “road trip” of about a 1k miles round trip. I want to take the Sube because it has cruise control, more room etc.
But in Jan. of this year it was diagnosed with the dreaded headgasket death sentence. Decided not to fix b/c repair exceeded value of car. But its still going strong and hasn’t leaked much oil. I have had one oil change since, and am do for another in another 1k miles. Thinking if I get another oil change right before trip, prob be ok. Am I begging for a breakdown? Mechanic friend had told me back in Jan. not to take long trips but otherwise should be ok.
