my truck is done. blew up the motor the other day. cant afford to fix it. cant afford a new truck.
Thats a bummer. Have you considered checking craigs list for a used motor? I see 4.3L on there all day in my town. For a couple hundred and an afternoon you could be back on the road
even at a good junk yard a couple hundred bucks for a 4.3, you can get a 350 just as cheap too for an upgrade.
Bum beal but this guy has a point. 350s are everywhere and you can pick one up probably cheaper than a 4.3 rebuild.
C'mon... can't let the truck die here..!... give it life! Let it live!
QUICK! Nurse, get me a 5/8ths socket, a can of liquid wrench, and 6 quarts of mobil 1 synthetic oil and a new oil filter STAT!!
We need to make a tiger team together to help get this truck back on the road.
my friend was saying the same thing too. go look through a junkyard for a new 4.3 liter v6 or a 350. so this is what im going to do. thanks for the help. and im only 17 so there was no way i was going to beable to afford a crate motor so i was almost forced to sell it and buy a old vw rabbit for 500 bucks. that wouldve killed me. haha.
thanks again, eric
D'oh! Get the 350 and leave the Rabbit alone.
Keep us updated!
And feel free to keep questions comming!
