More pictures to come when I remove the Block from the Engine bay.

My worst nightmare, happened to me in my 01 Mustang GT. at least with
That car a rebuild meant some upgrades at the same cost.

I'm fighting was issues now and what spuds like vanos or a timing chain tensioner

If it gets any worse for me I'll be in the market for an H2 or Grand Cherokee SRT8

There was an 04 for sale by me for 7k with a blown motor

Hey jsRRHSE, I was lucky this happened after I did an Oil and filter change. I had parked up the night before after coming home and no indication of a problem she drove really nicely. Next day after U did the FOD check after the filet and oil I started her up and she made a Deathly noise, I stopped the cranking and went to inspect and could not see anything. I pulled the Plugs used a fiberoptic camera to look and could not see anything wrong. Tried to start again and the starter locked up. So I pulled the Oil drain and was met with a Gush of Coolant and Oil. Freaking rod holed the Block. Just Glad I was not on the road when this happened it could have been far worse.
