So now I'm in the process of pulling my motor so I can replace the damn crankshaft. Luckily I was able to get a crankshaft for my 2.5 motor from a scrapped motor for free so now I just need to make sure clearances and tolerances are ok for this crankshaft otherwise I'm gonna be looking at a whole motor swap. One little oversight can really screw everything up.
That sucks man, I'm sorry to hear that. Good luck swapping everything over
