    Default engine trouble or sort of lol

    last nioght just as i was about to head off to my bed my brothers m8 phoned and asked for a hand as his car had broke down. went out to have a look at it and the exhaust was full of oil and the engine had appeared to have seized. so i towed him back to my house to have a proper look at it. well i stripped it down this morning and found this:-






    3 broken valves now embeded in the piston crown. cylinder head destroyed a bent cam shaft and a bent con rod . stripped sump off and have now replaced the piston a full set of piston rings and a set of big end shells. i have a new cylinder head and turbo coming this afternoon so hopefully should be back on the road next week luckly enough there was no damage to cylinder liners just in time for christmas

    Is that 3 broken valves on one cylinder alone? Any idea how it happened? BTW you dont hang around, where'd you get a new piston rings and shells on a Saturday? Not from Livi Auto Parts id bet.

    got new piston, rings and shells from pistons and components in glasgow. they keep most common ones in stock apparently. got piston, rings and shells for £155+vat and new (replacement) cylinder head and turbo for £450 inc vat.

    yeah it is 3 in cylinder no1. there is no damage to any of the other cylinders. all the other valves and pistons escaped unscathed lol

    he probs didnt notice the smoke as he had just driven back from inverness and it was dark outside but he said he didnt notice anything unusual untill the oil light came on and the car just stopped apparently. lucky he wasn't too far from home
