I blew up ANOTHER engine!!!

Man this sucks! I blew up the first one in January and it had close to 190,000 miles on it. I got a low mileage used engine out of a 2000 Excursion and that one lasted maybe 10,000-15,000 miles. I think it had maybe 60k on it when I got it. This one sounded a lot different than the first one. I could hear that shattering and metal flying everywhere! The first one was just a boom and no noise. The block is gone....again. I got holes in the oil pan.....again. I was not too hard on this engine compared to the first one. Oh well, just another one I guess. I'm going to the darkside now. I don't care how long it takes for me to get it done. I have other vehicles to drive so the excursion will sit. She's not moving under her own power until a common rail is under the hood.

Sorry to hear about that. I don't blame you for going that route. I just don't think I could stand my truck being down for a year like Alan's has been (and still isn't fully done).

I wish you luck! I will be anxious to see it running.

Re: I blew up ANOTHER engine!!!

Damn dude that sucks! I wouldn't let that happen to me, twice. When this block gets a rod through it, a CR is going in. I was actually thinking of suggesting that before i read on further in your post.

Re: I blew up ANOTHER engine!!!

I was gonna go CR the first time but the funds did not allow for it. Now I don't care. I am in no rush at all. I'll just rock the Denali 'till the excursion is done. I don't want to hear that noise again under the hood. I was hours away from my house a few weeks ago with a trailer....That would of been a horrible time to go boom! I thought this one would last atleast 100k before the big bang!
