99 3.0 Ranger HydroLocked
My son ran his truck thru massive water overflow during a recent storm, now when i crank it, sounds like a rod is coming thru the hood. Can i fix this ? Don't really want to go the "put new motor in" route, would like to fix it myself. If i can fix it myself, how difficult will this be, and is there a website i can go to for engine breakdown with illustrations. I have never went this far into an engine before, but can turn wrenches and have done my share of waterpump, hose, tranny and alt, starter replacements. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
