new guy with blown plenum (pics)
I have a 99 sucks edition, 130,000 miles. the fuel pressure regulator was replaced due to a recall on the old one, yet the thing still blew up! upper intake plenum blown in half due to backfire situation. Was starting it and BOOM. Blew the oil cap about 50 feet in the air!
The car has been sitting for a month now untouched since it happened. I travel for work and havnt had a spare bit of time to mess with it.
Im wondering, if coolant got into the cylinders and its been sitting this long, is my engine trashed? I read something about the bearings getting ate up with coolant or something and it scared me.
Also, whats the cheapest source for a new plenum?
And how likely is it that it messed up the map sensor or blew the lower intake gasket?
Thanks for your help!
