    I say clogged EGR cooler and I hope you all did clean it before installing new engine.

    @danlatu had a hydrolocked piston on the engine he rebuilt. Initial issue was just blown head gasket I believe. When he had the head off he noticed one piston maybe 1/8" low at Top Dead Centre. The rod on that piston was bent IIRC.
