I'm looking into buying a 2nd gen (looking at a '05 tomorrow) but this issue has me worried. It just sucks to have to do a 8+hr repair just because they didn't use enough FIPG. I'm just afraid that I'll go check out this truck (or any other in the future) and either it'll have this issue or if not I'll be wondering when it'll get it in the future.
2.if they didn't clean the engine, look for oil splatter in the area
3.if they cleaned the shit outta the engine especially in that area, be worried
