I'd look into having someone who knows how to rebuild an engine properly, fix it for you...

Hate to sound like a dick, but things aren't looking good for your rebuilds...

sorry to be off topic.... but damn that a crazy sig ^ and i agress with him. something is wrong with the way your doing it for it to blow up 3 times on you. if i were you id be so fed up with that car id sell it and try to land my hands on an all trac.

Frenchy, I just stared at your sig for about 3 minutes, over and over again.

Anyways, Yeah I would just get a 3sgte, It'll work better, and dont rebuild it yourself!

I use to work at a performance shop & i had the owner look at it the 1st motor he was no help !!!
but i found a dude that did the 5sgte in his mr-2, after hours of talkinhg on the phone we found he had the same problem And it was the oil pump so i got 2 more 5s short blocks one more time. Are you guys gonna wish me luck or say go 3s=2.0

you would think that you would have learned the first time. so your motor isnt getting enough oil...maybe you need a bigger pump?!!? damn...

i got my high flow oil pump from ats. most likely a very smart investment.

the amount of money you have spent on what 3 motors? if you would have done it right the first time you prolly would have saved a bunch of money.

that blue color is unlucky, I had a 6gc just like that kept blowing up trans, s5x and e153.. its just an unlucky car lol.

I would just get a stock motor and see how long it lasts you, sounds like hte rebuilds suck :(

If you have backup 5s blocks, just go for it.

I'll cross my fingers for you. :)
