Question about Ford Explorer
I had an over heating in the middle of no where so i have to manage and drive it to my mechanic, after we realized the head gasket is burt and water has went into the position of the pistols making the smooth places a little rough is there a possibility that the engine block has to be changed ?
Once water gets into the piston bore of the block, it is very serious.
You could have a cracked block or a bent connecting rod....
Driving with a bent rod will turn very bad.
When they are replacing the head gaskets, they should check the length of piston travel to top dead center on each piston/cylinder.
If you have already replaced the head gasket and it's running rough, it could be caused by a bent push rod (connects the crankshaft to the bottom of the piston)
This would make it run rough and will fail sooner than you think.
