    I have a pristine 05 standard cab SRT10 with 88K miles and is stock except black KMC wheels. I blew my motor today (not evemn doing anything fun, just driving normal).... but it's soo bad it punched a hole in the block.

    I think I am going to just sell it but have no idea what it would be worth with a blown motor. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    If you part it out you will make more money. People need parts

    I ordered an aftermarket one off of ebay and it should be here tomorrow. I don't need one right now but I figured I would get one when I saw it available.

    Engine is stock? No aftermarket goodies?
    Cylinder 1 or 2?

    Can you see a hole in the block? If you just dumped oil, maybe your oil lines just popped.

    I wish.....

    its the catastrophic grinding of metal parts and seize that makes me only wish an oil line came loose.

    Get it to a shop or pull the motor to see the true damage. You can't make an educated decision without knowing what has been done.
    Might be time for:
    1. Rebuild engine
    2. New to you used engine
    3. Sell as a shell
    4. Pull it apart piece by piece and part it out (you better have some room if you want to do this)

    I think he can see the true damage through the hole in the side of the block and not spend money on a dealership trip. :D

    Haven't been checking my phone or computor but about once a day now. Been pretty busy and kinda got burned out for a bit cruising the web. I'm sure you know what I mean.:D

    Was this a known issue? What causes it?
