Oil, Oil everywhere but not a drop in my engine!

Hopefully you’ve never been one of the ones that have either heard a terrible metal crashing noise coming from their engine or your VW just comes to a slow and horrible stop never to restart again. Why the horror? NO OIL. Either because of a unnoticed or unchecked leak or opps you forgot to put oil in the engine.

Here’s some pictures of what happens inside your engine case when the good times end.

Poor case. Destroyed. Never to be reused again. Why? When the rod bearing spun the rod came off the crank and bounced around awhile and broke the cam. This motor heated up so hot without the cooling effects of oil it destroyed everything inside. CRACK. Pieces flying everywhere inside the case taking more chunks of metals off with it. RIP.

Here is the what is left of said cam. It should be one solid piece, now three very sad pieces of scrap. A very expensive lesson to learn. All the the fancy oil coolers, expensive oils, after market oil filters or sump extensions can’t help your motor if there’s no oil in it!
