    I have chevy 2500hd with a duramax that is giving me problems. estimates to repair are 7500-9000, wondering if I can change it out and put a gas crate motor in it for less. all thoughts are welcomed

    Appreciate the advice, but since then it has began smoking white smoke out of the right exhaust tailpipe. I drive a big truck for a living and when they do this, it usually a blown head gasket. Of course it still has pressure in the radiator. I'm 99% sure it has not been hot. I checked the water temperature with a laser, and it shows around 190 degrees. What do you think about the head gasket "assumption" ?

    You can buy a test kit to test for combustion gases in the coolant.
