    Just a note to draw attention to the fact that, regrettably, my beautiful 605SV is looking for a new home. Details are in the For Sale section.

    Didn't you just spend big $$$ doing the heads & head gaskets? Have they gone again

    Patrick must be very disappointing having the same problem occur twice. Must admit in my Twin Turbo Nissan V6 I thought I'd done a head gasket not long after I imported it. Until I found a decent mechanic who analysed a leaking filler cap. Had the car parked nearly 4 months thinking the worst and not wanting to put good money after bad. I'd made the mistake of taking the car to a so called 300ZX specialist in Malvern. Any car, even a wellbuilt Japanese one can go like a computer with a virus when you get dishonest people working on them and repairing or upgrading more than one part of the car. Malvern had fiddled around with the cooling system, replaced a 2 piece tailshaft with a single one. It was a nightmare!

    It's possibly sacriledge and might be too involved with FWD to transplant something like a Nissan V6 engine or a 3.2L Alfa V6 into a Peugeot. I wonder if a 607 V6 would bolt in, are these more reliable than the 605V6?

    A smooth running V6 is a great engine. A turbo'd one when the ambient temperature is low and the air is fresh (winter and spring) is fabulous. The cold air is like free nitrous.

    Like the end of an era! The last run of 605 came with 607 drivetrain-ES9J4 and Aisin/Warner Auto.
    I have a feeling the guy that did his last head gasket job,may have not re set liner protrusion.
    Swapping the quad cam drive train is certainly possible but in Patrick's situation as he explained not viable.The easier option is reset current engine,its just labour intensive[req competence].Can imagine how silent the 605 would be with the belt driven V6-silky.

    There is a wrecker in my area that should give you $50 for it.

    odds on the block will need heli coils and being the rear head gasket you are not going to get it done in situ

    That's more than I'd give you for it... Infact you couldn't *give* it to me ...... If it's any like the XM to work on I'd sooner burn it to the ground while I dance around it cheering and drinking beer.

    Seriously though..... If one of you guys buys it, just whip the lot out. I for one think it's *insane* to try and work on these lumps of sh!t with the engine still in the car. Obviously the entire front subframe was assembled and built outside the body, so the easiest way to work on anything is to remove the lot. Why would you want to work on a car where you can't access *anything*.

    If it's air-con is leaking, your gonna love doing the evaporator too. Seriosly the best fun next to doing the head gasket that you could imagine.

    I wish you the best of luck finding a mechanic that will agree to work on it
