Repair Cracked Engine Block

A cracked engine block is a bad enough situation as it is, so it's essential that you don't make it worse by attempting the wrong repair. For instance, welding is a useful repair method in many metals, but on cast iron it will exacerbate the original problem. In the Cummins 5.9-liter engine blocks made between 1999 and 2001, with the number 53 cast on the side of the block may appear fixable by welding, but it isn't.

The area in question on this engine block suffers from being thinner than the rest of the block's wall. It also suffers from not receiving enough coolant flow during warm-up to heat the lower part of the engine outside wall. Thermal expansion of the cast iron follows the rise in temperature. Uneven thermal expansion causes stress when the engine is not warmed up enough before driving away. For those vehicles running the 5.9-liter Cummins engine, including Dodge pickups, motor homes, delivery trucks, tractors, buses, and even boats, a crack in the engine block can be devastating.
