    I have a Watranty but it did not cover the Oil cooler module thst failed !

    Which caused the 7th cylinder to spin and the bottom part of the engine to fail !

    No ! The Dealer told me it's about $40,000 for a New bottom engine,with installation.

    I did call Detroit diesel and asked them how much is an Entire New DD 15 Engine block ?

    They said about $42,000.

    So my mentality is why not just get a New Engine block for $2,000 ! More.

    So I'm not getting hosed.

    Because I Verified my my Local Detroit shop how muck a New engine cost.

    And I don't want to fool around with a used engine and lose more down time !

    The ONLY Good news is that I can Deduct whatever the Bill will be ?

    Towards my Tax bill for the 2021 year.
