I got curious and did a search. Looking back about 7 years, I didn't see one thread documenting a spun/failed rod bearing.
Either way, I'm glad to hear his operation is working for him, and glad I...

Steven,

I sold the 2000 model when I bought the '05. I never saw it again after I sold it.

Since I changed jobs, I don't put as many miles on my '05. It is at 269,000 miles now.

What coolant/antifreeze to use?

Again, welcome to FTE and hope you...
