Owwwieeeee

Took the truck in for excessive smoking. They diagnosed blown head gaskets on both banks.. when they opened it up the damage was enough that it is cheaper to replace the motor with a new long block rather than rebuild.. $18500.00 (Canadian dollars)
Maybe I should start a go fund me page??

That is highway robbery. There's absolutely no way it should be that much to replace head gaskets. Sorry to hear that... I wish I lived closer to you, I'd do it for $10k. lol

Sean did more or less say they found additional damage once they got inside. Labor is expensive so it very well could be cheaper to just replace the engine.

Almost makes you think about another truck. Of course new truck's a little more than $18,500.

Yoiks! Sorry to hear about that Seann. What kind of a trade in will they give you? Maybe take it to Jason in Detroit for $10K?
