Re: To Rebuild or not to Rebuild that is the question

Heat may have messed up your cylinders and/or pistons, and/or engine head. When this happened to us in a diesel car, it cracked the head and blew pistons and ruined the camshaft, probably along with a bunch of other stuff. If yours is still able to start, maybe it didn't get as hot as ours did. Get several more opinions from people who will come look at it and know more. And get a temp alarm that works.
