Well, I went and ordered a factory reman long block for the minivan. It was about $2000. I just didn't want to spend anymore on patching it up. The coolant damage didn't mortally wound it ..but it surely shortened it's senior years I would have surely gone over 250k with this engine. Next, although it's not needed yet, is a reman trans. That's about $1200 and includes a new OEM lockup converter. Alas, poor 3.0. I knew it well The guinea pig is dead! Long live the guinea pig!!
