Pow !! and fluids leaking everywhere

Just seeing if we can get any idea's but truck is being towed to dealer already. Buddy has 02 with 100k on it and running superchips ( ) , gauges 4" tb exhaust,intake( k&n wont listen )and built tranny. Rolled into it on a two lane to pass a bus and he said it made a pow like a turbo blowing so he pulled over and has oil and coolant pouring out from underside. Said truck was still running and not knocking like it destructed. Oil coming down both sides of the back of the motor , nothing up top in the valley , and coolant flowing as well but did not get the details on where from. Like i said it has been towed to a dealer as he was in BFE and will be getting repaired there unless motor is shot. Thought i would post it up to see if anyone has had something similar as i am just curious like that , will post up outcome when he gets her back.

Well he got the call from the dealer and.........bang !! thru a rod thru the block at 109,000 miles. On the upside a mechanic there offered 1700 for the whole truck....what a joke.

Yup... Coolant and oil running out is never a good thing.

Time for a new motor.

Was hoping for his sake it might have been simpler but thats the way life goes......he was talking about parting it out and going and buying a new 1/2 ton gasser. Hope not tho - he has a really nice clean truck that attracts attention everywhere. Go back with a long block or find a " C " to drop in it ??

Just outside of Austin, Texas.. he picked the truck while living up there just west of you a few hours in Eugene before outsourcing forced him back to Tx.

Oh... my bad. I missed the "Buddy" part in the first line. That's what I get for thinking too hard. Still a shame to see another 7.3L windowed.

Anyway... Long day. Outback is calling.
