Greetings.

New Member, finally figuring out how to use the site.

Sort of in an '08 Limited Hemi that I inherited from my wife after she let the kids learn how to drive in it...

I've started to rebuild (read "Kids used it") and hope to get some insight here.

Look forward to contributing.

Keep or Replace??

I have an '08 Limited Hemi since new.
Had work done including cooling system that ultimately failed and I think I warped the heads.
I've recently put about $10K into it including service, parts, aftermarket, etc. and don't know if its worth it to replace motor or let it go.
Any advice??

Welcome to the forum Stevel22;

Does your XK have Quadra-Trac II or Quadra-Drive II?

How many miles are on it?

If you have already invested that much money in it, I'd just replace the engine;

You are the original owner, so, you know exactly what you have.

Put a new engine in it and you'll get another 10 years out of her with no problem - as long as the body and interior are still in good shape.
