Engine blown....again

Oh for f*cks sake.....second engine in my ownership of the Skyline apparently lost its bottom end tonight

She's occasionally been a tad hesitant turning over from cold the last few days, but I thought little of it. Now I'm wondering if it was a sign of crap to come. This could be Skyline ownership over. B*llocks.

If its the second engine to blow I would be looking into the reasons why. Is it a standard car or tuned? If its tuned is it a bad map? Engines dont blow for no reason so you need to find out what caused it and fix it or the same thing might happen on the 3rd engine.

Better luck with this one! Did you strip the old engine to see what had happened?

Not yet no, but I've asked the garage that will be doing the work next week to strip the knackered one and find out!
