Piston engine problem Brisbane - BROKEN

"Broken pistons"  occur often due to lack of general maintenance and can be resultant damage caused by the breakage of associated engine components. For example a failed big end bearing if driven to the point where the con rod fails the now unconnected con-rod can smash and break the piston and cylinder block. Another example is where a cam belt runs past its service mileage and breaks causing contact between the piston crown and the cylinder head valves, the valve heads break off and can severely damage the piston crowns. Pistons can also be broken at the piston pin boss if a seizure of the pin in the piston occurs. This problem is rare and normally results from a dry oil pressure start up after repairs or reconditioning. When an engine has a serious problem that causes the break up of pistons extreme care must be taken to ensure all the broken pieces are removed from the intake manifold, turbo and any other places where these broken parts may have ended up. Con rods are very suspect to bending when this type of damage occurs. Ensure all associated parts are checked for any resultant damage.
