    Default Possible engine damage ford fiesta

    Hi all. My sisters car broke down yesterday. it appears a coolant pipe had split and but my sister being a little stupid used the car and thought nothing of the temp gauge being will high. So anyways the car then broke down completely after she heard very loud knocking then steam etc. there's talk of it being a new engine, I've never had this happen to me so wouldn't know, so what kind of damage could have possibly been done here. Thanks guys

    Sound like the engines cooked. How old is the car? If its old mite be easyer to get a new car instead of trying to fix it.

    56 plate tbh it's never been looked after and I bet there was no antifreeze in it and that's why the hose split. So am I right in thinking the fact there's no water running through the engine to cool it it's just got so hot it's seized ??

    Knocking will be the big ends. Stick some water in it and see if it runs, she may just be very lucky and all it needs is a new set of shells, but no way of telling without removing the sump etc.

    Before jump to too many conclusions bang some water in and see if it'll run.

    Check oil level too
