Question about Cars & Trucks
Pistons are just blocks to fill up the hole. The rings do the sealing of the block or piston to maintain compression. When the water pump goes out then the engine overheats and the rings soften and break scoring the cylinder walls . In really bad cases the rings may seize and break the lands out of the pistons but pistons do not bend. Con ( connecting rods ) will bend if there is an excess of water allowed into the combustion chamber and when the piston comes up and there is not enough space left for the piston to go over TDC then the con rods will bend /break and if really bad will bend a crankshaft. It is an interference motor and if the cam belt breaks then the pistons will hit and bend the valve heads as the pistons hit the open valves
