So, having the Solstice in pieces wasn’t enough fun. The engine in my 06 G35 coupe blew a couple of weeks ago. Over the holiday weekend, I finally got a chance to get it in the air and see what the problem really was. Before this, I was hoping I was just looking at a rebuild instead of an entirely new engine.
No suck luck.
Hood and grill off, ready to get to work!
I’m not really an expert mechanic, but I’m pretty sure the rod is NOT supposed to stick out of the side of the engine.
