They have no known epidemic type problems , however heads usually suffer on gas, espically if its old mixer type gas system.

Particularly check out valve clearances.

172k isn't much for a 16 year old car , more likely is general wear & tear & deteriotion
of hoses belts etc if they haven't regulary been done.

Not sure if the 4.5 came out with an extra auto transmission cooler but if it hasn't got one then I would recommend getting one fitted and make sure the transmission has been serviced.

Catch up drive is a good idea.
The boy is still on his learners, probably have his full license by Christmas. I have let him drive on one trip through dwellingup. His instructor was a bit unsure if it qualified for the log book, but it was to late I had already written it up.

I have a couple of free weekends coming up, have you still got your same mobile No?
