Another "what else?" thread.

Well, I decided to do head gaskets as that was the only thing we could think of which could be causing my issues and it's a good thing because they were shot. Now that I'm in that far, is there anything else, short of a full rebuild, that I could or should be doing?

2004.25 MY engine. EGR delete. New, rebuilt, HPOP. VERY thorough reverse flush of cooling system, restore, distilled water, etc. Oil cooler deltas are 3-4 degrees at highway speeds after half an hour of running. Changed all o-rings in HPO system to exclude standpipes because you can't get to em without tearing engine apart. Full oil cooler rebuild. Turbo reconditioned. (may be doing a rebuild....have to determine if the oil leak is internal of if my CCV catch can isn't working as it should. Upgraded alternator. Good ICP and IPR. Good injectors. Good wiring. I think that's about it.

So, anything else I should be looking at or replacing since I've got the heads off, etc? One thing I don't know is if I can reuse the glow plugs. They appear in good condition and I have never had any codes on them.

If you ever thought about injectors now would be a good time.

Re: Another "what else?" thread.

Considering I'm going broke on this job, I can afford a grand total of zero injectors. lol I've never gotten any codes or had issues other than light stiction in winter (before I started running Archoil) so I should have a few years on em. Those aren't difficult to replace thankfully, so when I do have to do it, I won't be upset over the amount of work.

Re: Another "what else?" thread.

I'm curious about your statement regarding the standpipes. If the heads are off aren't the pipes out as well? Or are they set up different than my 06?

Re: Another "what else?" thread.

The early 04 stand pipes SHOULD be off if the heads are off. Otherwise...How did you get the heads off? The stand pipes run through the heads.....at least that's how they are set up on mine......??
If this is not fact, please, enlighten us.
