After all this... A Cracked Block.

Well after all I have had happen with this motor. Now the coolant in the oil can be linked to a cracked block.


This is on top of everything that has happened with this motor...

1. A set of bad injectors washed down the cyclinder walls. Requiring a rebuild.

2. Getting the engine back and having a good sized oil leak.

3. Finding out the coolant was getting into the engine oil.

4. Pulling the drivers side head off to find valve to piston contact.

5. Having Buddy pull the passenger side head off to find way worse valve contact on the passenger side.

6. Getting a second call tonight to learn that the engine block is cracked.


Realizing your motor is at EDP and will be taken care of priceless...

Re: After all this... A Cracked Block.

I forgot in the first post to explain the crack. From what I was told the crack goes from the #2 Main up to the #4 cyclinder, and on to the area around the cam shaft. I was told I was lucky I parked it when I did, and that it would of spitted parts on the ground shortly if I didn't...

I will post pics as soon as I get them..

Sorry to hear about all your problems. Looks like it is all getting sorted out in one way or another.
