Grand Prix GTP knock after machine shop mistake
Payed a machine shop to replace a piston in the car after valve to piston
contact, also caused by the machine shop. They had to remove the rod from
the crank, and were instructed to replace the bearing if need be. They
didn't and a day later and 85 miles later, it was knocking.
I am an ASE certified mechanic, not some backyard billy bob mechanic. I
build race engines, but choose not to do short block rotating assyembly due
to the liability. I have built tons of these engines, and this was the
first to have a knock. I know it was not my fault, because the cylinder
knocking was also the cylinder they took apart. The reason the damn valve
hit the head, was because they didn't machine my new bronze valve guides
enough, and a valve stuck in the head during engine break in.

Pontiac Grand Prix GTP motorswap
Okay for Devon, this has been a money pit, and well 1st week he had the car
he spent 1500 for paint, 2nd week the engine locked up, after I dropped a
used engine in it, another 1000 later, Okay update,cleared the check engine
light and problems so far solved!, trans shifts normal for the most now!
any damage I blame on Advance auto parts, one for reading the codes to him,
but telling him he couldn't clear any fault codes? I'm like Okay whatever.
I never heard of an OBDII scan tool that couldn't clear the light out. so
he drove it after the fact, anyways my friend Joel brought his scan tool
over, we cleared the codes, and like magic, the trans was back in order for
the most, and well now 2 days later light still out and driving good, so
some good signs
