    My truck over heated pretty bad I feel like let it cool it cranked drive it back to my hunting club! It sat a week! Crank first turn over I backed it up checked the oil now it won’t start! I kinda feel like there may been some water in oil! Was kinda loose! Cracked head? Any info on to get one?

    If you have water in the oil it gets milky.

    Didn’t look milky to me! But after it happened I came back few days later to use the truck! Crank right up but ran rough a little! Cut it off to check oil! Then wouldn’t crank back that day! Came back the next time crank right up but was running rough like it wasn’t getting enough gas! Just don’t know where to start really since I didn’t see water in the oil after it over heated!

    Probably the best place to start would be a compression test. Do the easy stuff first before you start tearing things apart.
    Do you know why it over heated? Could have skipped a tooth on timing belt when hot so a timing check is cheap and easy. I always fear the worst and hope for the best. If you're sure there is no water in the oil or oil in the water then you can probably rule out the high $$$ stuff.

    Do a full tuneup, including setting the idle mixture. Overheating is caused by the timing being off, or the air fuel ration being lean.
