    Hey All,

    I’m currently in the process of sprucing the J35A4 in my ’04 Odyssey back up after it suffered a blown head gasket. Currently my only plans are to clean the cylinder heads and block, check them for flatness, machine them flat if necessary, and leave the rest of the short block alone. The idea being that, in theory, this would cost less than the increase in resale value it would bring about. I don’t plan on keeping the vehicle but I also don’t want to have to sell it for next to nothing.

    While I’m a pretty good tinkerer, I don’t have any experience with engines. So I want to ask: is there any other work that should be considered for a project like this?

    Considering your planning to sell the vehicle.
    Wise enough to do what is required to get it running nominally.
    If the next owner wishes to dig deeper, that is his choice.
