Re: Blown Engine Confirmed
They drained the oil from the engine and found some nasty looking lumps of metal apparently. I don't think the dealer has the time or inclination to undertake work like that really - also dont want to spend the money if its ultimately unrepairable.
They seem to think a can rod is the main issue and the valve just an after effect, not sure but maybe the piston crown hit it.
It makes a horrendous noise even on slow turn over and no compression in one bore.
The underlying cause may have been when the oil cooler hose burst a few weeks back, it went unseen for a day or so and got pretty low on oil.
Towing the car home tonight so i'll start to have a little look myself, heads/sump off etc
