What parts on a 1998 eclipse gs break from running it out of oil


Often there are not any broken parts when an engine is ran low on oil.. The engine never really makes it to far out of oil before it welds the pistons to the side walls seizing the engine tight. Every now and then a rod will break because at hiway speed the engine went empty the piston seized but the crank and rod did not thus pulling it with such force to snap it in half then producing sometimes a hole in the engine block, hood, oil pan where ever it decides to go. And this is about it Crank not often cam not often. Hope this helps

Rod knock


1. Rods connects to crankshaft and pistons.
2.Crank access is under car through oil pan removal.
3.Piston is romoved after step 2 through top of engine after cylinder head removal.
4. This is simplified explanation, you need to get head and pan gaskets, a gallon of oil, piston ring compression tool, knowledge of engine components and timing procedures etc...
5. Do you have a big garage and all required tools? What have you fixed on a car before, this is not a beginner or intermediate level fix.

How to replace a piston on an 06 sonata


You should not need an engine piston on such a new vehicle.
Do you mean a brake piston or something?

If you threw a timing belt, you don't have to replace pistons, just the valves.

If a piston really were bad, you need to take the head off, drop the oil pan, mark and remove the rod cap, and then push the piston and rod out the top.
If the car was not so new, you would also have to **** the ridge off at the top of the cylinder. But probably unnecessary after only 4 years.

1989 jeep cherokee makes loud knocking noise in straight line six 4.0 engine. Engine does not smoke and does not appear to have a miss.


Four things can give you a knocking noise. 1. failed rod bearing 2.failed main bearing 3. Bad piston wristpin 4. broken flex plate (auto trans)
If It's a bearing, likely you are seeing lower than normal oil pressure. Any bearing repair requires the pan to be dropped but to do the job correctly requires engine removal, crank re-grinding or replacement and oiling system cleanout (expensive). Wristpin (piston/rod assembly) can be serviced without engine removal but pan and cylinder head need to be removed. Flex plate is pretty much a trans remove and replace, with new wheel.
Only a good experienced tech can differentiate between the noises so I suggest you seek aid in your diagnosis, though, if either bearing or piston is the problem I'd likely find another engine before considering the repair.

My 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee cuts off while I'm driving.


If you have zero oil pressure thats a BAD sign, first have a mechanic check what the engines actual oil pressures are.

Throw a rod


This is caused by a lack of oil to the rod bearing. Financially it will be cheaper to get a used engine and replace it as a whole. but if you desire, remove engine, turn upside down, remove oil pan, remove piston rod and bearing cap assy, inspect bearing, will be blue or locked and frozen/welded to the crank due to lack of lubrication. Keep me posted.
