My truck overheated on my way from work about a month ago (I drive 180 miles round trip) and the engine died shortly after I noticed my temp guage in the red. After troubleshooting and a trip to the machine shop, I found that my cylinder head is warped beyond repairable limits. I was wondering if anyone has had any luck buying a new head. I dont want to get a refurbished head even though its cheaper, I'd like to have a new head with a new warranty because pulling it is a major pain in the butt. Recomendations?
Also a warning to 4 cylinder S-10 owners. As soon as you see your temp guage rising to beyond normal stop immediately and change your thermostat! Mine only ran hot for a few minutes and the head was trashed, thats why I keep a thermostat in my pocket at all times now.
have the same problem?
