Thread: Chipped Piston Verification.

  1. #1

    Chipped Piston Verification.

    Just got one low mileage s/c 3800, and one with 10 min run time with no oil pressure.
    Pulled the heads on the low mileage one with a knock noise.


    Found this.

    That looks like a chipped piston. Also looks gouged. I'd expect a full rebuild with this plus knocking noise.

    Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car, oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car, horsepower is how fast you hit the wall, and torque is how far you take the wall with you.

    Usually gnawing on your engine parts isn't a good idea to get more iron in your diet. Just saying.
