Re: 2000 3.0 blew up

Most likley getting it that hot the heads are cracked, but you gotta pull them to check the gaskets, so you can have them checked for cracks and warped, and have a look at the cylinder condition.

Re: No timing advance in my 3.0!

Kinda light on information on what's going on, never saw a light put on a computer engine, so can't say it would show or not, does it throw any codes?

Re: water leak

If no rust holes on the roof, I would look for cracks around the rain gutters, as well as the caulking.

Re: Front end rattle

Ball joints and shocks tend to make a thunking noise if loose, a rattle sounds more like something loose, inner fender or some other light metal in the front.

Re: Thermostat housing

If that's the thermost housing, could be the gasket, or the housing rusted through or cracked.
