New Guy Here - question about 4.7

hey techs, gotta question bout a 04 limited im looking to buy:

found a low mileage 04 4.7 knocks hard on accelerated speed, got it up to oper. temp. and was checking it out, found left bank head gasket blowed (previously) and antifreeze cap was cold and radiator was empty, is it salvageable or is motor pretty well junk?

Re: New Guy Here - question about 4.7

Welcome to the garage.
The 4.7 will warp its heads if the engine gets overheated. It can also result in later valve seat drop. So it can mean that it will need new (reman) heads or at least a full head job. Did you check for eventual fault codes stored in the PCM? So depending on the price of the jeep, it can be a go or a no no.
