1993 Dodge Daytona Blows a connecting rod while at wide open throttle!!
**OK ALL YOU MORONS THAT THINK I BLEW UP A PERFECTLY GOOD CAR: THE UNIBODY WAS ROTTED OUT BEYOND THE POINT OF PASSING INSPECTION. THIS CAR SAT FOR 2 YEARS BEFORE THIS. BEFORE BLOWING THE ENGINE THE CAR WAS THRASHED ON A BACK ROAD AND THE SPIDER GEARS WERE BLOWN OUT OF THE TRANS SO IT DIDN'T MOVE. IT WAS HEADING TO THE JUNKYARD THE NEXT DAY, AND IT PAYS THE SAME RUNNING OR NOT SINCE ITS SUCH A COMMON/WORTHLESS ENGINE SO WE DECIDED TO HAVE SOME FUN!
VW Jetta 'Getta' HY35 Engine Blows and Fire Starts!
My friends 2002 Jetta (2.0 auto) that was swapped with a 1.8t/manual swap,
custom intake manifold and custom turbo
kit with a Holset hy35, ls2 coils, unitronic ECU, digital climate control
swap, audi tt front spindles, clutch masters fh400 clutch setup and audi tt
awd 6speed tranny (will be converted to awd this year).
The stock rods we know were the weak point but it didn't bother us because
we have a fully built motor to go into it. During the video we were having
issues with controlling the Boost
and hitting 2.29-3.3 bars of Boost... and well you'll see the result. The
reason for the fire was a nylon tube that melted and covered the turbo area in oil, which burnt the shifter cables
and some wires. No big loss, 150 dollars in parts and a crazy drive. Will
be back soon with over 550whp ;)
The car was fine we were 1/8 of a mile from the house before it caught
fire. Towed it home and found that the number 2 rod went threw the block
RIP stock 1.8t
Build thread can be seen here
We want to thank the two families who used their car for us to drive to our
house and grab all the water and helped extinguish the fire. We thank you
SO much. Please if you ever see this video contact us we would like to
repay you in some way. To us you guys are heroes.
Ever thrown a rod? how about a block?
HUGE engine explosion at a tractor pull event. the block is literally
blown out of the engine bay and lands onto the ground next to the tractor.
as far as catastrophic faliure goes, this is as bad as it gets.
Jeep throws a rod
This was a 4.0L Jeep Wrangler that was towed to me that had thrown a rod.
The back of the Jeep was covered in oil. It was splattering oil out of a
hole in the oil pan. You can even see part of the connecting rod sticking
out of the oil pan. I wanted to rev it up and scatter it, but the vehicle
didn't belong to me and the owner didn't like the idea! Thanks for
watching. Please subscribe.
Mercedes Benz Diesel EXTREME -20F Cold Start Winter W115
((Look at my new cold start video, all the bugs are fixed))
I only paid 300 dollars for it, the guy thought it had a blown engine, but
it turned out the timing on the injector pump was way off. I ended up
taking the injector pump off and putting it on the right teeth, and doing
the drip test, and etc.
The Death of a V8 RX7 (with update in description)
My 302 powered FB RX7 decided after months of abuse to throw two rods on my
way home from work. It put a hole in the oil pan and two holes in the
block but still I drove it home. I decided since nothing was savable to
take it out back and finish it off.
Update: First to clear things up and settle some arguments. For everyone
that says that this was a waste of money, I made money on this car. I got
the car because I traded a for festiva for it that I had no money into. The
car also didn't have a engine in it when I got it. My friend who was the
previous owner had removed it when it went bad and then lost interest in
it. The motor and trans( a AOD for those wondering) came from a car I paid
$75 for and then scrapped for a profit. I sold the intake and carb off it
and then put a 350 chevy in it with a turbo 350 which didn't cost anything. I then sold
the car as a unfinished project and made almost a grand on it. The whole
reason for building the car was just to have fun with it and I wanted
another project. It was never to build something that was going to rule the
streets or show how that one engine is better than another. I just like
wrenching on cars and wanted to see what I could put together with
basically spare parts. Also to those that say that I should have saved the
engine or that it was junk for blowing up on my way home. That engine had
well over 150,000 miles on it when I got it and was then used in a derby
car before it got use in this car. It was well used, had been over heated
and wasn't worth anything anyways. And anyone that knows anything about
building 302's knows that a mid 80's passenger car 302 is definitely not
the engine to start with if you want to make power. They are low
compression and have terrible heads and camshaft due to emissions
standards. This was just something to build for fun and for the few months
it ran it was a blast to drive.
