Block engine problem Brisbane - BURNT OUT

This is a problem that occurs more with diesel engines than petrol engines. The effected area is at the top of the bore. The bore and flame ring if applicable will have the appearance of being burnt away with an oxy. The block will require sleeves to be fitted. Quite often the problem has existed for so long the damage is outside the limits that available sleeves will repair, so the block is U/S. The main cause of this occurrence in diesel engines is a leaking injector ,faulty injector pump or incorrect injector pump timing. The problem in diesel engines quite often goes unnoticed until the engine is stripped down for a rebuild. By this time the compression is low and the engine has developed a misfire, has blow by and visible exhaust smoke. This condition is caused by excessive combustion temperatures. The cooling system on a diesel is usually fairly over sized and efficient so the problem is not reflected in the temperature of the coolant. That is the main reason why the malfunction goes unnoticed even though loss of engine power, black exhaust smoke and excessive diesel knock usually accompanies this condition.
