  1. V8 gurus required

    I am looking at a 2001 V8 discovery 2 4.0L with 125k miles on it. Not much history but seems to run well. Have head all about gaskets and slipped liners. So without knowing if the gaskets have been done or any other engine work is it likely to be on borrowed time? Or if it hasn't happen yet is it unlikely to happen if it hasn't happened already? Can anything be done to prolong its life? Or is it best to do preventative maintenance and get them change or is it opening a can of worms? Also is on lpg at the end of the day it's a £1600 motor do I just run it until I have problems with it and am I working unesscessarily? vehicle will be doing a bit of towing if this makes many odds? Thanks
