Thanks for the info though I appreciate it!
Nah bro, vinyl wrap it! I've seen too many times where plasti dip fades and starts looking poppy after a few months

Re: Rebuild or replace 3.7l

I'll have to look into the cost, I've also entertained the thought of bedliner coating it as well...don't know just throwing that out there as well..

So my bore scope came today, thought I would give it a shot before work..these videos are of the cylinder in question...

After the scope gets in the spark plug hole, you can see sludge and or what looks like rust as well... Also something else to note I did bottom the scope in the chamber and it was covered in gas and sludge when I retrieved it...the depth of the stuff was about 2 inches..

I was hoping to see the cylinder walls, and maybe I am, I was curious as to how extensive the walls may have been damaged if they were, guess I'll truly find out when I pull the engine this weekend...

Sorry bro, my phone can't play the videos. Can you post pics from the vids?

I'll do a couple more tomorrow when I have more time, probably use my laptop vs my cell phone with the scope and see if I get any different results..

Re: Rebuild or replace 3.7l

Yes sir...#1 cylinder... Think tomorrow I'll turn it over with the fuel pump relay out and see if I can get some of that stuff out of the cylinder and recheck it with the bore scope

Re: Rebuild or replace 3.7l

Question is, if the piston isnt moving and not ejecting that 2 inches of liquid, then obviously we have a piston rod failure....so maybe I don't need to fire it up, I can only imagine what a broken rod would do to the cylinder walls...

You could have someone hold the cam in the spark plug port and then you could turn the engine by hand. No risk of damaging it further from running it
