Aww, comeon man. Comapred to all that other crap you just did, this is a walk in the park.
Ship that SOB down to me and i'll have it fixed in an afternoon.
It may also not be what you think it is. Flush it out first. I had Oil in my Rad when i bought my truck for what seemed like no reason, A flush and refill (after a new Rad) and its never been cleaner.

Not me, I seem to remember you posting vids of you hooking up bumpers to pull a taco or something like that around. How could all these problems keep happening?

You must be the kind of person who has bad luck or no luck at all.

Is it a substantial amount of oil? Have you flushed the radiator since you got it?

Well, I hope it is just a simple fix. You seemed very excited about getting it rebuilt. And I would hate to see $$ go down the drain like that.

But if you do decide to part ways with it, I STILL HAVE FIRST DIBS ON THE TUNER!!

Headgasket Failure! There's a substantial ammount in the oil. Compression test was awkward. I'll post the results when I get in.

Dude.. wtf.. I've never seen one other person have as many issues with their one truck as you've had with yours. I don't get it... everything that could go wrong does... I'd be fed up with it too. But after all that money you just spent.. that's a big commitment... do you really wanna give up now?

I have a suspicion the engine only over heated because the tranny was super hot? It's shifting fine and the gauge was reading in the normal level. but i was told the pressure port i used is only good for 2nd gear? But if the trans did cause this the trans shop is getting a phone call.. If i can prove that it was a trans related issue i can call them and tell them whats up. If the trans was that hot causing the coolant to get super hot causing the overheating.
