    I think my engine might be ruined... ?

    347 stoker motor in my mustang has been great never let me down, never got hot etc. 

    It’s a mild engine, makes about 300hp at the wheels. I haven’t used the car much, maybe 3 times in two years.

    The last time I took it out was 5 months ago. Over all it was a 40min drive around the suburbs.On the way home, I thought it was getting a little hot (no temp gauge) I pulled over and let the engine cool for a while, and topped up the water. When I went to crank the motor again, it just clicked and wouldn’t turn over (I thought it may have been the battery as it has been sitting around for so long) I tried the car again after waiting a further half hour and it fired up. From there it was a 10min drive home. I checked the temp in the driveway using my inferred temp gauge and it seemed all the normal operating temp. I parked it in the garage and it’s sat there since..Today (5 months later) I went to go and take it for a drive. Did all the checks, pulled the dipstick and it was milky. I was hoping, that it may have just been condensationI dumped the oil to find coolant mixed in with my oil. Obviously it’s blown a gasket, and I fear that it got a lot hotter than I thought ( especially thinking back to the fact it wouldn’t start ) I am also worried that Coolant has been sitting in my engine for 5 months rusting the componentsI haven’t tried to turn the motor over by hand yet to see it it’s seized.What’s the worst case here? Full rebuild? Or just new rings and bearings and I’ll be away.

    A Honda is an economy car.  What is with kids wanting to put a fart muffler on them and pretend they are sports cars?

    I was in a rented minivan today and one sat beside me revving and revving so when the light turned green I took off at normal speed, not even trying and put 5 train lengths on him.  I looked back and just like all hondas do, he broke down on the side of the road with billowing smoke, as his overweight girlfriend got out of the passenger side and started crying.

    How much does it cost to insure your new car?

    I want to buy a new car. I currently drive an old beater that pretty much on it's last legs. One thing i liked about driving the beater was the cheap insurance i am only paying $230 every 6 months. If i do decide to get a new car with full coverage how much would i pay more?

    F150 high fuel pressure?

    I have a 2008 f150 5.4 3v with about 143k miles on it. For a while now ive had terrible fuel mileage (9mpg city and highway) and low power, I’ve noticed that after idling in park for about 10 minutes the truck starts vibrating a lot and the fuel pressure shoots up from the normal 40psi to about 70psi and kind of flutters a couple psi in either direction and the rpms go up from 600 to around 800. The vibration smooths out with a slight rev and goes away when I put it in gear but its still 70psi until I drive around for a couple minutes, while I’m driving I can watch the fuel pressure slowly drop back down until it gets to 40psi and runs smooth until I sit in park for another 10 minutes and it does the same. When I rev with the high pressure it drops down to normal but as soon as I let off the gas it goes back up. It never shakes like it wants to stall but it’s definitely a noticeable vibration that almost feels like it pulses in and out every other second or so. The spark plugs and coils are all new, fuel filter has less than 10k on it, maf sensor is fine and has been cleaned, throttle body cleaned, no vacuum leaks, injectors have been cleaned with new o rings. Any ideas what it could be? What kind of things should I check. Please don’t just dismiss it saying it has a lot of miles and is junk, I’ve heard of these things going at least 300k and other than these things it runs great

    Do people still steal car radios, I'm carious?

    I remember growing up, that was like a popular thing. The thing is, I just bought a new car. Or new used car. The radio was working a week ago but now it just wants me to reset. I watched a video on how to reset. The dude speaking in Spanish had the whole deck removed to reset it. If I'm going to remove the deck, then I minus well buy a new one but I don't want people trying to steal my new deck. That's why I want to know if there are still people trying to steal car radios?

    Why can't most auto mechanics just be honest?

    I had my friend who is a mechanic put new pads and rotors on yesterday. We were bored after so just for fun we drove to Pep Boys and told them I think the brakes are rubbing. Sure enough, the guy comes back a half hour later and says the brakes and rotors are shot lol.
