New main bearings, rod bearings, camshaft bearings, piston rings, head gaskets, valve cover gaskets, EGR gaskets, intake gasket, plenum gasket, Exhaust manifold gaskets, valve stem seals, thermostat, oil pan gasket, oil pump, water pump, oil filter, engine oil, and paint. I neglected to include piston rings in the audio, but the engine does have the new rings.

How To Unsieze An Engine
This is the diesel I got for the Astro van, basically free, with the 700R4 transmission. Which ironically turned out to be a great transmission, the only one of three that has a good fourth gear, but I rebuilt it anyway. Who knew a 30 year old automatic could still be sweet inside. I have unsiezed this diesel engine like this three times now. It obviously has some internal problems. So its on the list to get a tear down and rebuild, right after the Ranger is back together. It takes about an hour or more to get this motor turning over 360 deg. Then it won't quite fire, but makes little smoke puffs. The starter in the 6.2 diesel has some serious torque, sucks the battery voltage down and makes a tremendous amount of heat. It still takes an hour of cranking an eighth of an inch at a time.

GM 3400 / 3100 3.1 3.4 Engine Misfire Cause & Causes Miss Missing P0303
Here is a video for fellow GM 3400 & 3100 liter engine owners. Have a misfire? This video explains the causes for what could be causing the problem. Mine showed up as a P0303 cylinder 3 misfire. Couldn't figure it out, but finally did. The spark plug and wire were replaced along with a new coil. Could hear the injector firing with a stethoscope but still had the miss. Found out after tearing into the intake that the lower intake was cracked. If your car is missing out, first try the following. Check for spark and check the spark plug, wire and coil. A test you can do if it randomly misses is in the dark, spray a mist of water around the plug wires. If you see blue arcing, you've found the problem. But be careful not to zap yourself, IT HURTS! If the spark is good the listen at the injector. Is it firing and clicking? If not, you've found the problem. If both those seem good, then check for compression. Do this with a compression tester available at any Autozone with the loan a tool program for @$40. If all 3 of those check out then it's a possible vacuum leak. May be time to do an intake manifold gasket repair as they are known to go out. But, if you do have to do an intake manifold gasket fix, go ahead and replace the head gaskets too. You'll be glad you did. Not fun taking it all back apart again. Check out my youtube channel for these videos both on doing the lower intake manifold gasket and the head gasket.

3100 V6 Ticking Noise
96 Skylark, 3100 SFI V6. It's made quieter ticking sounds before but not nearly this loud. I've been using part synthetic high mileage oil for almost a year, just dropped in some Mobile Super Synth and this started up. Lifter tick? Piston slap? Knock? Something else? Apologies for the crappy camera work, I was trying to focus on sound and I don't usually record video. :\ When it started it was erratic, and then it could only be heard at a LOW idle. Now you hear it until the engine drowns it out at higher revs.
