I'm pulling it tonight and dropping it off to a shop to get cleaned up and machined. They should find any issues

Replace the valve guide seals when you have it at the shop.

Just got off the phone with the machine shop. $300 for cleaning, skim, and full rebuild. That's definitely happening

Make sure they do a crack test too. I want to say it is called magnaflux or something.

OK, another potentially stupid question.


Are the cylinder heads for the 2.5P and the 2.5D the same? Specifically, I'm referring to the bolt patterns and whatnot. For the life of me, I can't find a head bolt kit. Only individual bolts of different sizes. I've got them all puled up in the parts manual, but it's a pain in the ass.

No, the heads and bolts are different.

I'm going to guess you do not need to replace them as most of the engine rebuild suppliers don't stock them.

The one 247051 is cheap and easy. The other two look hard to find.

I haven't found a definitive answer on whether this is appropriate or not, except the manual states to use "new" bolts. No data on if they are torque-to-yield or stretch bolts, but I doubt that they are. I've just always known that it is good practice to replace them every time.

Maybe I'll try it and see what happens, I don't mind being a guinea pig

The head gasket is $15 right? There has to be a lower cost source, but maybe not considering there are not a lot of 2.5 petrol about there. I would replace them but I am not exactly a budget guy anymore.
