WOW you can go the the junkyard, buy a head for 100 bucks, get it cleaned and freshened up at a cylinder head shop and still spend less than 300 totalSoooo my truck has had a really rough idle for about a month. i tried this and that after doing all my research here only to not fix the problem. it runs smooth but at idle its really rough. finally took it somewhere so they could figure out the issue.
Turns out one of my valves is burned up, as i sort of expected after pages n pages of posts i read. decent psi in three cylinders n only about 60 in one. anyways, he said he could send it off to his guy that does heads and he can replace the valve or whatever. also he said most of the time the head is cracked in this case.
long story short he quoted me 1500 if the head is good, 1900 if the head is bad. my truck is barely worth that much!
what would it take/cost to replace a valve, or worse case a new head?
anyone in san diego know whats up? otherwise ima turn it in for scrap money lol.
thanks for all the informative posts on ct, i learned a lot.
