Pretty much what happened is I pulled the oil pan to replace the gasket and at the bottom I found the heads to two connecting rod bolts in the bottom of the pan. I looked around and figured out they came from cylinder 4 and 6. Was told that I need to replace them and one of the bolts is all ready removed so I'm kind of stuck needing someImperialCrown said:What are the circumstances of the failure? If they failed while running, you may want to replace the connecting rod if the heads are still off.
I'm confused. I am seeing pressed-in studs and cap nuts to fasten the rod bearing cap in the 1996 and 2000 parts catalog and the studs are only serviced with the complete rod. The connecting rod bearing caps must stay with the rod that they came off of.
A connecting rod bearing cap bolt is offered in newer engines 2003-up and the bolt 6507235AA (M9x1.0x45.00) is still available in parts and online.
All the main bearing caps use bolts.
