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...

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..

I have the perfect solution for you:

You list "Girdle" in your sig, with a full built engine no less, yet.... the title of this thread is "A Cracked Block".

So, here's what you do. Call the number to the company you linked in your sig, "Terminator Engineering", and the guy that answers the phone can explain to you how that's impossible, and that your block is NOT actually cracked. Problem solved, crisis averted. I know this because he has explained it to us all so many times, with such adamant displays of omnipotence.

Charles, why don't you call me? Oh wait, I'll be in the field all day with NO service................:doh:

Are you going to blame it on Extreme ICP? Or the Tuner?

I think it's highly possible he has/had a cracked block because it's just a BAD BLOCK. It happens..........

Tyler, what cylinder did the fire ring/head gasket failure happen to be in?

Joey, I don't believe I had a fire ring/head gasket failure now. I think the coolant was entering the oil system from the crack in the block.


However I had some major piston/valve contact... Due to no clearance.

Charles, I have alot of respect for most of the comments you make, and feel that on most subjects you have some great ideas. If you have a more serious idea, feel free to reply. If you want to throw some below the belt punches at Joey or anyone else in this thread.

Please STEP OUTSIDE. This isn't the place for it.
