Unfortunatly, engine blocks are difficult to repair, if not impossible. A good welder can reweld certain spots, but if it is broken where the cylinders are, you need to replace the block, better off just to replace the whole engine.

Engine light on after car stalled. Was running very rough when stopped at a light. Happened very suddendly

What would you like to know Pamela ? Your best bet is to take it to a ASE certified repair facility or the dealer !~ Given the fact of all the electronics on your vehicle . It takes very sophisticated an expensive test equipment to test your vehicle . With the engine light being on DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes are present in the PCM/ECM - engine computer . That would be the place to start !

What is causing my 1997 suburban 350 engine to backfire through the intake?

If you had no problems before the accident then anything associated in the accident is suspect as to why the problem started . Check for any fuel hoses in the area that may have been pinched or broken. Check for broken /blocked exhaust system, crushed pipes. Check the cat converters for cracked internally and blocking the exhaust. check for pump lines in the area . Carefully check all items around the damage site as it will be noticeable as different to how it should be.

Replacing crankshaft pulley on 2001 Ford Taurus SES, V6

Now did the crankshaft break OR the bolt(s) that hold the pulley on broke?
If crankshaft is broke, you are better off finding a replacement engine for what it will cost to repair UNLESS it an expensive special built engine you might want it repaired.
If it is the bolt or bolts your best bet would be an - easyout- set, it looks like a drillbit set kind of. PB blaster and some heat (propane torch) will help. DONT get too hot because you will destroy front engine seal(s) from heat. It will be a tight fit job depending on if it is a sideways engine of standard with radiator in front that you can remove for more working room. Any issues I'll help u out. Done plenty. Paul

What you Have Described is Indicative of Throwing a ROD. Practically the ONLY thing this Can Be Is A Connecting rod Broke Loose and was Ejected Into the Oil PAN this Is FATAL Engine Damage.
To Fix it Without Replacing the Engine ? YES But Engine Must be removed and Disassembled to repair it and the COST Would Be Excessive.
Best Bet is Replace Engine, New Engines Have GOOD WARRENTEE"S --- Used Engines have SHORT Guaranties BUT With a SKILLED Technician Doing the Selecting for you along with Finding one With LOW MILLAGE then you get off Much Cheaper that NEW One. Hope This Helps and Sorry to Have BAD NEWS on Your Engine

Hi engine rev

the repairers may of not plugged the throttle body plugs in if its revving to 13000 rpm you will blow your engine up your best bet is if the repair was done under insurance ring your insurer and tell them your problems and tell them you are not happy with the repair they are under a legal obligation to get it fixed
