... Head Gasket job... parts list? and a shop to rebuild the heads...
I have a 2002 durango, SLT+, 4.7, 4x4, with 60,000 miles on the clock. It overheats.
I seem to have a combustion chamber compression leak to the cooling system that leads to overheating. I need to pull the heads and at least replace the headgaskets. Already been through the Waterpump and T-Stat some time ago.
I have a few questions.
I am looking for a shop in Eastern North Carolina to rebuild the heads/check them for cracks etc. I am in Morehead City but can go to Raleigh if need be. Better still if they know this head as I understand there is very tight tolerance for flatness on it.
I need a parts list for the job. I know I will need a top end gasket kit and head studs.
Is there anything else I need.
Are there any special tools I need for the job? I know there is a special tool for the harmoic balancer. I do not have it. Do I need it?
I want to make a parts list and tool list int he next few days if at all possible.
Thanks for reading.
