They informed you there was a hole in the oilpan. It might have been from debris ( tree branch , rod or something ) . If you loose the oil, your going to spin a bering or toss a rod.

Do you have skidplates on tour truck to protect the pan at all?

Im thinkin that i do have the 5R55E Im not sure tho, id have to check.
The hole in the pan was from the rod, after i got it out of the water it ran like crap with a ticking noise, barely any power, then it would regain power, we tried to drive it to my buddys house, to get it in a better place, but the truck just gave out and doesnt start now..
I dont have any Skidplates

The bell housing bolt patterns are different between a 3.0 and 4.0 regardless of the trans. I have a spare 2004 3.0 but it would cost alot to ship you should watch the pick-a-parts...lol

You need to find a junkyard motor and have a mechanic swap it out. It isn't that big of a deal. 3.0s are a dime a dozen. I would try and get a post 02 one though.

Go to www.car-part.com, and do a local junkyard search for an engine. You might find something better...

Edit: I did a local search for my area on there, and ive found quite a few for 750 with as low as 17K.
