Holly sheeeyt!!!!!

So on the look out for a new engine, that must be trashed beyond repair.

So, what let go do you think?

My main dealer has only ever seen one 4.7 with damaged internals, in that case was a spun main bearing.

FFS, if that generated a slight noise I would hate to think what the customer deems a loud noise.

I had something similar on A V6 Essex engine, oil pump drive rounded off, oil pressure dropped off, engine temp went up - then an almighty bang as one of the middle pistons went through the crankcase.
BIG cloud of white smoke, more noise and then NOTHING as I coasted to a halt from 80mph on the A3
That was 30 years ago.

Daft question, the owner report a little noise, is that when he brought it into the shop? Or did it happen, let go and recovered to shop?

On the drive home tonight I had the windows down and radio off listing for any slight noises!!!!

Wow that is an expensive repair I hope he has a warranty.
I always thought that in catastrophic engine failures etx that your insurance company would step in and help in some way? I may be talking bollox though ?
