My daughter let her coolant reservoir run dry. Kept driving the Explorer with engine light on and check gauges.
She made it to Canadian Tire, they tell her head gasket blown spewing coolant all over engine, no surprise. They went on to say, they think main bearings gone and want to replace. I told them do not do anything and I will get Explore Towed from there.
Is this possible to score the main bearing and to determine, without teardown.
Can anyone answer and know of any good reasonable cost shops or bcakyard mechanics? We are in SW Calgary.
the best thing you could have done is getting the unit away from those incompotent crooked parts salesman at canadian tire. a second opinion is DEFINATLY needed. i would buy new shoes and walk before letting those "mechanics" anywhere near my vehicle.
You don't "think" main bearings are gone, if they are toast you will know it, but yeah at least a ford dealer will be a much better place to take it, but as far as good shops and what not can't help you to much there.
