    It\'s finally dead :(

    Welp my loud tapping turned into loud banging which turned out to be a rod... and I was coming home tonight, heard a bad sound, lost the engine power, lost battery power... so now it's sitting right outside the governer's mansion probably being inspected by hair-shedding dogs...

    So now I have to round up some money and get a new engine... and kill whoever didn't take care of my poor Blazer!!!!

    for a summer job, i once picked up rental cars at the airport, and took them in to the dealer for service....

    i picked up a knocking 4-banger dodge, and kept revving the crap out of it, making it downshift, till it knocked a hole in the side of the block with the #2 piston....

    now you can get a fresh new motor!! hope you're not as broke as me, and you've got an alternate ride!!

    i guess the conrod is what decided to exit the block, but you get the point....

    I'd find a used one and install it if I was really broke.

    I'd do the same thing. I've found running junkers with 305s in the $150-200 range. Sell/scrap the junker after the motor's pulled and you've almost made your money back [​IMG]

    That sucks man... you just got that sucker out of the shop didn't you? Well guess it gives you an excuse to upgrade [​IMG]. I think GM shouldn't of bothered with the names Blazer or Jimmy... should of just named them "money pit". I'm just glad I chose a name for my truck w/ an explictive in it LOL [​IMG] Saves me having to come up w/ new four and five letter profanities to say after it LOL

    Re: It\'s finally dead :(

    Here's an update... Called a tow truck and met the guy over where the Blazer was... ALL the oil, antifreeze, tranny fluid, etc was in the gutter.. and they gave me a pretty little sticker on the window saying get rid of it soon or it'll be impounded..

    the tow truck driver checked the damage out of curiosity.. pretty bad... I think It's still dripping the last of it's fluids in the street right now...

    Since I'm broke I might end up selling it and buying another truck/SUV... I hate to say it but if I can't find a cheap Chevy I may have to go Heep or ford :(:(:(:(:(:(

    Good news: Getting closer to Heather... if I could just get the guts to ask her out everything would be fine :) Spent all night with her tonight at some college expo and then at McDonald's.. gave her a ride home after school today... Gotta step up before she closes the window!!!!!!
