Engine Running NO OIL - NO SUMP - Seized Soild on Camera
Messing with a Mitsubishi Lancer
There are loads of videos where people run an engine at full rev with no oil in it, and the engine seizes.
Running it a medium rev, I wanted to see how long it would run with no lubrication, and I was surprised.
However if the car was driving and the engine was under load, it would be dead in minutes!
Blowing up a D series. Hilarity ensues.
A friend of mine sucked up some water driving in the rain last night. He said it started acting up on him, so he parked it at a gas station. Started it this morning, and had a slight knock in rod number 3. He drove it about two miles before it was just completely toast.... so we put it out of it's misery. Everything went better than expected.
Note the chunks of connecting rod and block under the header.
Engine Swap (blown connecting rod).
I helped my son do an engine swap on the weekend due to a connecting rod wanting to go through the block,we used a 2.2 engine out of a 2001 pontiac sunfire and put it in a 1999 chev cavalier..

1994 Ford Escort LX 1.9l Turbo Ticking Sound? (Now Fixed)
(What the car looks like today http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lvDRA90QAz8 )
Hey guys, this is my 1994 Ford Escort LX 1.9l turbo
It started this ticking noise probably 2 weeks to a month after we turbocharged it and has made this noise ever since. (turbocharged April 2nd) and it is August 6th today.
It has been making this sound ever since then but has not really gotten any worse or better and I don't think, if I recall, that it has really done anything to the performance of the car.
It is a little bit louder at start up say... in the morning rather than in the afternoon after the car has been driven, so its kinda like the longer that it sits without running the louder the noise, or maybe something else, is at startup. It maybe does get a little bit quieter after being driven around but the sound is still there at idle and does not go away when I am driving.
The last two time I changed oil was Dec 5 09 at about 130,000 miles and June 24 10 at about 135,133 miles, which I know yes is about 2,000 overdue. Each time I have changed the oil I have used Motorcraft Oil 10-w 30 and a Motorcraft Oil filter.
Oil level checked every time, even though I know it burns through the turbo, bad journal bearing, never seems to go down to much but always checked and filled to full.
As long as I have owned the car, even before turbocharged, I have never ran it past 4,500 rpms, just incase that could be a factor too.
Never ran any additives or cleaners to the motor.
I don't know if its a lifter, a vavle seat, ticking injector, etc. As you have seen in the video, I do have a new valve cover gasket, and would plan on going to a local jy tommorow if anyone would have any advice on what the sound could be coming from. Thanks in advance and would take any comments or questions you have into consideration...
