No it doesn't run alright, all of the lifters were completely flat when I started it. I'm gonna try changing the oil and filter first and then go from there. Just hope that the motor isn't completely trashed, but there is no telling how long they ran it without pressure. I'm ready to start beating on him but it's not worth going to jail over or worse having to deal with the wife afterwards. :
I say once they fix your Ex put there blazer back where it was stuck, or stick it somewhere even better haha, but seriously despite the wife thing I would persue for the bill to have it back the way it was when you left.
This is just one of those things that's so stupid and pointless and yet causes so much trouble... I'm not saying that it's a triviality that you're having engine troubles, because I know I would freak if that happened to me, but the circumstances leading up to this could have been avoided had there been slightly more thought on the behalf of the parties involved... Now you're not only dealing with the issue of the money and liability, but you're also set up for some personal reprecussions as well... Then again, none of this was your fault, so if the guy would just fess up and pay his dues there wouldn't be any problems...
Personally, I don't know if small claims court would work... Unless you have stacks of reciepts showing that you've taken immaculate care of your truck since you purchased it, and can prove that it was in fact the boyfriend that caused this damage, I think you'd be pretty much stuck. Then again, that's just me... you might actually be able to pull it off. I'd try to deal with it personally... I would avoid doing something rash like stealing his car or whatnot, but keep pressure on him to get your money back.
update:::::I've got oil pressure now, but the lifters are still tapping really bad. I'm not too sure on how long the oil pressure will stay up, thinking more along the lines of internal damage here. I'll get into that after I get back from AZ. I still haven't heard anything out of the boyfriend, he drove by my house Sat while I was cleaning out my big truck, he saw me in the cab and sped up. I will up date this again when I get back home and tear into it. Keep your fingers crossed for the best.
put some tranny fluid in with the oil. i had some pritty bad clatter from my sister running my X without oil. that was when it was her's and god knows chicks dont check oil and she thinks the "check oil" light means wait till she gets home and have me do it. anyway ever sence then when i change my oil i put one quort of ATF and 4 quorts of 10W-30. i no longer have any valve train noise.
