The 06-09 engines 4.2 SC and 4.4 NA are bulletproof. My tech was telling me how they had a 4.4 blow a hose leak all coolant out and was driven back to the dealer after driving for 40 min with no coolant and all was well after replacing the hose and flushing the system.

It’s the 5.0 that’s fragile as an egg shell. Have heard stories of the block warping within minutes.

Glad it worked out. I know it is stressful!

Good to know! And honestly I can say for certainty that the 4.4s are very reliable! That is one reason why I’m afraid to get anything newer then a 09 as I’ve heard many horror stories about the 5.0
