Could this be caused by a failed heat exchanger? This motor only has 104118 miles on it?!

Well 170 bucks sounds great... but flushing the radiator and the engine sounds like a nightmare, or do you need to do that?

I'd run a whole lot of flush through everything. Coolant doesn't make a good bearing lubricant!



This engine had about 15 minutes of run time with water in the oil from a bad intake seal.

I'd flush the block and run a lot of clean oil and then listen very carefully.

Yes, you need to flush the coolant system. I did it about 5 times(everyday when I got home from work, I would drain and refill. 1st 2 days w table spoon of dawn added to straight water, then just straight water)

No need to worry about bearings, Coolant did NOT get in the oil>
