Attempt to Drive the Jeep Grand Cherokee With Blown Engine
Well I had to try and move the jeep with the blown engine, let's see what happens!
My engine threw a rod
...my engine threw a rod *UPDATE* Alright because of a number of users claiming that I was "revving the motor" I felt like I should explain in detail what happened. So many assume that because the car was performance oriented that that makes the owner drive like an idiot. Anyway my old motor (original stock motor) was having to many problems and I decided to get a newer used motor. I wanted a jdm swap but didn't have the money and needed the car running again asap. I instead got a used motor from a local salvage yard (moraine auto parts). I had just picked up the car from the shop that day and was heading straight to work when this all happened. The shop switched my painted valve cover out (which I thought was nice) thats why it looks like its the same motor as before but its not. Anyway I'm driving along and I notice the engine noise is getting louder and sort of whining sound. Obviously we know what happened now because of the video but when the rod actually blew I nearly crapped my pants. I was in the middle of highway traffic and could have lost control etc and died. The aftermath is I towed the car right back to the shop, missed work that day, and a friend picked me up. The shop inspected the motor and called me the next day and told me the reason the motor went bad is because the intake side of the head wasn't getting any oil. After another motor was put in and I came to pick it up they let me see the one that blew up. I'm glad I didn't have to pay for the second motor replacement or labor again. They called the salvage yard and bitched them out pretty good for me LOL. I come to find out later that this salvage yard is very bad. We aren't talking a reputable place like Hmotorsonline etc. The engines just sit outside on the ground or back in a "barn" all year long out in the rain and snow. Thats what they call "fresh".
Full size Chevy van engine AMAZING blow up scatter 4.3 v-6
This thing blew the freak up! It threw 2 rods and the pistons out of the bottom, and KEPT on running until it finally locked up the other 4 rods! Amazing blow up for sure! The other good part about this.. It used to belong to my boss. KUDOS to the one at the throttle for not getting scared and letting off when it scattered!
Who needs rods?
this is a video of my friend Joe drifting his 240, throwing a rod, then drifting some more. lol.
