Oh yeah, I heard it. When I bought my black 5ktq about 300miles into
owership the crank pulley bolt fell out and it bent all 10 valves
(http://jcforbes.com/jcfpics/11-20-03/P1010001). I heard it, and it sounded
alot like detonation honestly. Was cruising down the highway @ 70mph in 5th
when it happened. Heard the noise, then lost all power and lost all engine
breaking since there was no compression in any cylinder.
