I think its much to pull engine and replace,and less costly too,if you ever pulled one apart after a bang like that, its 98% distroyed

1 out of 1 people think this is helpful.

It's time for another engine - maybe another car.


thanks i got a new vehicle i just thought it would be a fun experience but if its all destroyed then it sounds pointless. I'm going to part it out in the summer thanks again
