    To me, it's a good idea to always carry two sacks of something when you walk around. That way, if anybody says, "Hey, can you give me a hand?" You can say, "Sorry, got these sacks."

    6/8/2016 315k, and it appears the head gasket has called it quits , truck is seeping water at the very front of motor above water pump, its not getting into the oil or combustion chamber. also appears there was some "stop leak" in truck since i bought it, now trying to decide if i pull the head for a gasket, or just reinstall stop leak and drive,

    leak didnt appear till i flushed the hell out of the cooling system for a water pump change, truck still runs perfect has great power , just has a drip from the "leak"

    what do you have to lose at this point try some stop leak. it don't work then you have to replace the gasket and do it right.

    Try the blue devil head gasket or block sealer, shits kick ass. I got an extra 40k out of a car using that stuff. It's a lil costly at about $50 a bottle but that's cheaper than a head gasket job. Also I followed the directions and then let the car sit over night and had no issues after.

    There is this guy named Murray who holds a big party ever year for the Dream Cruise down at his six stall garage in Royal Oak. One of the events is running a motor dry, and then there is a betting pool to see how long before it lets go. One year they used one of those Ford sixes and it ran so long they ended up shutting it off and raffling the money instead. Last I heard some bought it and put it in his van and it is still running. They started pouring water in the crankcase after draining it now to ensure they get a windowed block and a winner!
