I killed my truck today
I knew it was going to happen, just not like it did. I knew as soon as I fixed the rear end and the transmission that the engine was going to go. After all, it has been knocking for a year. But it didn't throw the rod, instead it blew the head gasket and possibly cracked the head. Last time the head gasket went the head also cracked. I guess I didn't replace those freeze plugs quick enough.
I'm not sure what I should do. The truck isn't worth fixing but that's never stopped me before. I don't have the money to get another truck so I guess I'll eventually start taking it apart to see what I melted. I drove it until it quit running, I was tired of stopping and adding water. It'll be down for a while. I'll let you know how it goes.
