Yup..

replaced my injectors.....she started and ran fine..but has a slipe lope and roughness when you get on it...

pull the oil fill plug off..and get some nice strong blow by....feels like she's runnin a cylinder short....and some nice blue smoke at 2K rpms...so

looks like its gonna be a long block exchange for me.....hompefully i can get her done within the next week..

got a source who can get me a long block for $1500..my price...so i'll part mine out to make some money back i guess..


the plus is i'll have an engine w/ less miles??/

Do you think its because of the bad injectors you were running for a long time?
That and driving with diesel in the crankcase!:eek:

Really sorry to hear that Joe.:( Let me know if you need any help installing the new engine or anything...

btw are you going to be getting rid of any parts off the old engine like the ECM or FICM or anything??

...and now the vultures set in... :D

It didn't come w/ a ECU or EDU......

I got a guy giving me 1250 for my engine..minus the starter,alternator,and power steering pump...

can anyone do better than that?

this guy i belive only wants the injection system...cp3,injectors,etc...

so i'll see what i can do..
