So my buddy decided it was a good idea to clean his air filter with gasoline. He said it reved up really high made some popping noises and then stopped. Any ideas as to what could have gone wrong with it? Rings and pistons? Or new engine time?
Yeap new engine time. He's the second one in a week to do that to a diesel on this site. Will it run anymore. Could have revved to high and cracked a pistoin or bend a rod, or even blow out a head gasket. What year is the truck?
depending on the rest of the truck, you could get it cheap and drop a newer motor into it. just a thought. have a good clean truck with a classic look and a newer motor (04.5-05, or you could do an 06 but would need the 6 speed transmission as well) and have half the money in it as opposed to buying one newer
Depends on what you can rebuild it for or get a used engine for, and what he'll sell the truck for, what options/condition etc.. Book it, deduct worst case scenario from that, then take another 2G off just for being a Derp and killing a D-Max with Gasoline :rofl If he bites, why not?
