Buying a 2000 ranger today with a bad head gasket (4.0L)... From what I have found the gaskets seem to be a common issue with the 4.0L. The owner tried driving it to save a tow bill and I think he possibly hydro locked the motor. I am picking it up today, but anything I should look for regarding common problems with these? Any suggestion as to where to buy parts? Thanks for your support,

Newbie Curtis
