The Bronc has been driving so well since I fixed the cooling system and this morning after I got to work, it wouldn't start back up. Thought it might be the starter so my dad came and got it towed with his AAA. Well, turns out the roller thrust bearing was completely shot and the crankshaft was moving forward and backward a little more than inch, give or take. So I either need to get the engine rebuilt(it is the original engine with 180,000) or a new remanufactured engine that will include new manifolds since mine are cracked. My dad took the car to Pep Boys and they don't rebuild engines, but they will replace it with a remanufacted one in. The engine would be 1300 with all new parts, oilpan, manifolds, etc, etc. plus labor it would be around $3000 total. This sucks big time.
