Overheated Engine On My 98 Sc400 Fix Or Replace?

Recommended Posts

Pulling off heads today that should tell me if rebuild feasable or should I look for a used replacement. It would be helpful if anyone could provide me with intake manifold torque specs and any other info that could assist me in case of a rebuild that I must do myself.

Water in the oil and in the cylinders tell me that at least the head gaskets went and hopefully didnt cause too much other damage. Any comments or help would appreciated.

well if you are doing all the work yourself, it all depends on whats busted but its seems like your head gasket is blown right? so replacing the engine isnt something that is needed. but if you decide to do head work at the machine shop then it might get pricey. so just take both the heads and get a pressure test and resurface.
