Default Good engine shop/mechanic in the Raleigh, NC or Richmond, va area



Motor sounded like it dropped a valve about an hour ago and I am in dire need of some help. Stock 502 MPI in my 2000 Sunsation. I knew it was just a matter of time ( I drive it like I stole it) but it had to happen right when my brother was coming in from Kansas City to visit for the week.

Appreciate it. I am going to pull the valve cover to see what I can see. Hopefully, I didn't do too much damage but you don't know until you get in and look.

Ohh well...I kept saying if I broke it I was going to have it rebuilt with more HP. Just wasn't ready for it to break in the middle of the season!

Assuming it needs a rebuild you can do it in a week in August!...that's worth the drive to PA if that's the case!!!
