Well, the worst has pretty much happened. As some of you know my truck overheated on the way back to college and I ended up having to fly out. I got the truck towed to Cerrone's European, and had them diagnose. They called me yesterday saying the coolant system was over pressurizing, damaging the cap to the coolant reservoir along with the bleed screw. After checking a few things, Frank called back this afternoon, and said there was a 90% chance it had a liner issue. So, essentially the truck needs an engine.
I have decided that if I am going to replace the engine in my beloved Discovery, I need to guarantee that I am not going to have the same issue in three months, so I have decided to get a block rebuilt improved with top hat liners and ARP studs, mitigating the liner and head gasket issues that plague the 4.6 motor. Right now Q and E in Anaheim are looking like my first choice to build up the new block. I'm going to call tomorrow and figure out what pricing will be etc.
