Wow dude. Do you change your oil every 3K miles or do you just wait for the oil life thing to pop up?????????

Yea what yea and how many miles do you have? Do you drive a lot and aggressively? Like stomping on it all the time? If your an average driver I cant think of a reason for the piston to go except for factory defect.

Bullshit, you drive that thing like a 90 year old lady and you know it. Your sig is computer generated. :lmao:

I drive mine like I stole it and only change the oil every 6-7k, it's seen hard racing and a ton of trips down the 1/4. It's returned 50k trouble free miles and still pulls 22+ mpg on average no matter how I drive it. I get a kick out of the causes people think of for the reason an engines failed. I'd bet money that his trucks engine blew from a factory defect, nothing more nothing less. No manufacturer produces any product with 0% failure rate.

Let us know if they tell you what failed, if it's a knock then it's hard to say exactly what it is.

Yea thats what I think too. Still you never know. I use to run my civic hard as hell and change its oil every 3K miles and I'd still use up a lot of oil in between. At the same time I never checked the level and that caused me to blow a rod bearing one night:kiki:.

Only time I blew mine up was cause I was running about 15PSI for about 3 minutes straight and had my speedo pegged. My EGT shot up to about 1500 and welded my exhaust valve seals to my head and fried a few oil rings lol.

well the first diagnosis is that a piston came apart in the cylinder. Which probably means it tore up the cylinder wall. im guessin im gettin a new engine. they said they have never seen this before so they are thinking factory defect as well.
