shiny cylinder walls

O.k. boys,,, sit and take note. I've successfully done this so "NO" one else should. About 2 months ago I noticed my dad's truck consuming coolant (2 gallons a day). I thought it was your typical higher cylinder pressures (programmer, injectors, bigger turbo) and such, but after tearing down the motor, all 8 cylinder walls are a bright polish, and the mechanic called it a "water washed". Oh ya, the heads are warped, cracked 3 to 4 times per valve , and the head gaskets are toast. W.T.F. Any help? And before dad passed, he said to listen to scuffy on this web forum that he knows whats what. I don't know who he is, but i'd like to hear from him. Anybody got anything?

btw if its that bad, it will need a new block or resleeve it and heads are not repairable. you never suppose to be adding that much coolant that soon. does it white smoke??

still dealing with the aftermarket warranty company. They are sending a used motor (no Info) to my mechanic's shop. for swap (major ordeal). Working on getting info on the engine. not happy at all. My dad bought the truck in May 08, and in Aug. the EGR cooler blew and took the head gaskets with it. It was at the dealership 6 weeks getting repaired. Now it's been in the shop torn down for almost 3 weeks. I'm forming a bad opinion of dealerships and aftermarket warranty companies.

"aftermarket repair company" is the key phrase.


Most likely they are sending out a reman motor. You should be fine. Let us know when it comes in.
