Ring engine problem Brisbane - STUCK / SEIZED IN GROOVE

Engines "using excessive amounts of oil" will eventually have the first and second compression ring become stuck in the piston ring groove. When this condition occurs the rings will stop doing there job and the compression will be low. Late model engines which use low tension piston rings are very subject to this condition. The carbon and tar can become so sticky that the engine will be driven and parked and when it cools and the cold engine is being restarted it will lack compression to the point it has to be dismantled and re-rung. Foreign bodies being ingested and "damaging the piston crown" close to the top piston ring can cause seizure of the top piston ring. Engines that break timing belts and the pistons contact the valves can sustain damage to the piston crown that may seize the top piston ring in the piston ring groove. Diesel engines with high mileage often have seized top compression rings due to "excessive carbon" build up behind the piston ring.
