Well, what do you mean you were driving and you "lost compression"? Did the truck die and not restart? Did it start smoking profusely? Is there coolant in the oil (chocolate milk on dipstick) or oil in the coolant? Does the truck crank but not start? Give me a little more info and I'll give you my $.02. It may not be as bad as you think.

well the truck died and would not start back up. yes it will crank over. yes it did smoke. as fas as im concerned it does not have coolant in the oil. but the raditor is full of ice and it is cracked at the top right if your looking at it from the front of the truck.
