"The RoadTek"

« on: July 27, 2017, 05:18:47 AM »

Yesterday at 4:27pm EST, the Aztek once again overheated. I was 2 miles away from work and had a friend bring his Dirtymax and tow me home on a trailer. When we got home, the engine refused to turn over. I got her started up, and the starter and all electrical wiring was extremely hot to the touch. Once we got her off the trailer, she started to billow white smoke. The head gasket popped and the engine was done.

Majora097 - really sorry to hear that.

Did you have any warning before it happened?   Any idea what caused the overheating?

Again, really sorry to hear this. 

I hope you're able to fix it (either by replacing the engine or the head gasket).

Time to do the 3500 swap..  from what I hear it's pretty simple in a car which came with a late 3400 and you get 25 horsepower for free.
