No, because you cannot remove the oil pan to access the crankshaft without lifting the engine.

My mitsubishi canter 4d32 engine had all its 4 top compression rings broken ie one from each bore what can possibly cause that and what amount of smoke or mist should i expect from the breather after...


As an engine wears the ring lands on the pistons wear also. In addition to ring land wearing on the piston, the bore in the cylinder develops a wear pattern. Has the engine been rebuilt?
If the pistons have worn ring lands and were re-used it may allow the rings (new or old) to twist in the grooves and catch on any ridge in the cylinder, thus breaking them.

When the engine is apart you must check for proper ring land wear. You need to consult the piston manufacturer for proper wear specs, typically around 0.006in.

If you're getting a visible amount of smoke/oil from the breather after the rebuild something is not right. The rings are not seating. I would definitely recommend boring/honing the cylinders and going with a new set of pistons/rings so you don't have to pull it apart again. A little more now can save a lot in the long-run.

Have oil in one of the spark plug cylinders what would be causing this ?


broken/worn piston ring(s). Each piston has 2 rings. These can be replaced by the DIY mechanic by
1) removing head of engine (remove head gasket - you'll replace it), then
2) manually wind the engine (with a ratchet wrench & socket) til the piston in question pops up
3) remove both rings (with ring pliers - available from any auto parts store)
4) install 2 new rings (with a ring installation collar - available at any auto parts store)
--- choose ring installation tool to the correct size for your pistons.
5) re-install head of engine (replacing head gasket)

Note that this procedure preserves the engine timing, so you need not reset it.

My hyundai accent piston rings need a change how


If it needs rings, it probably needs a lot of other engine work, like a cylinder hone, or if it's out of spec, a bore, which means new pistons and on. You might look into a good remanufactured engine that comes with a warrantee if your has a ton of miles on it.

Shortblock, rings/bearings


Yes you can remove the pistons without removing the crank. All you need to do is make sure when you go back in with the pistons that the rods and studs don't scar the crank. You can do this by putting a piece of rubber vacuum line over the studs. As long as the bearings are ok and within spec then you can reuse them, just make sure you keep them with the rod that it casme off of and not mix them up. I don't reccomend reusing them because you can purchase new ones for about 30 bucks.
