Okay, I am about to take my truck out back and kill it.
In calling around to get some head gasket/valve job estimates a mechanic finally made some sense when describing what was happening. Unfortunately, he told me that I likely had a hairline crack in my block that was expanding with the heat of long trips. He also strongly recommended against using block sealer because of the heat of where I currently and soon will live.
My question is: How likely is this the case?
How much does it run for a new engine? I would rather make the jump to Diesel, but don't know if I can afford it.
If its too much, anyone want to buy my truck?
