This is interesting about the 104 head gasket. I purchased mine used with 81,000 miles and got a copy of the service records and see where the head gasket was replaced at 65,000. Was there an upgrade to keep this from happening once it is replaced the first time? Can I expect it to blow another one at around 120,000 miles? I'm glad that I do all of my own mechanical work and would not feel at all uncomfortable with changing a head gasket. I would be pissed if any of my Hondas had ever blown a head gasket at 65,000 miles.
