Replace the broken part in the oil assembly, if metal debrys got inside the oil pump, then the oil pump had probably been damaged.
I suggest replacing the pump.

Give us more details if you need additional help.

Thanks.

Hi, I would like to answer your question better but I do not know exactly what you are asking. If the cylinder was bored to go bigger and a hone was used and they didn't get it exactly right there are going to be a lot of metal shavings in the crank case. You said did, "they" break, I don't know which "they" you are referring to. If you are seeing big pieces of metal it could be pieces of the rings. I don't think the oil pump would be in pieces. The unfortunate thing is that you will have to tear the motor down and check everything if you have big pieces of metal in the crankcase. Good Luck to you!

I have a 64 ford thunderbird . When I bought it , the guy said the transmission had been rebuilt recently. When I took ownership of it, driving just a few miles , it stop going in drive. It will only go...


You are using F-Type Trans fluid, right? Otherwise it would not shift as firm as it should.
Or It could be a crack in the cast iron body leaking fluid. When it was rebuilt did they check for that? The valve body has check balls that can stick if the wrong fluid is used or the channel is worn.

Had a "new" engine put into a 2002 Dodge 1500. Still running hot and oil pressure drops. How can I tell if the mechanic actually put a "new" engine in?


Not many ways to tell without taking the engine apart.
There should be signs of new gaskets and shiny clean metal.
A brand new engine is not really possible since Dodge probably stopped making them a few years ago. Most times you get a rebuilt engine from Dodge or any number of rebuilders from around the country.
As long as you got a warranty that covers 2 or 3 years and several thousand miles, you are as safe as you can be. The warranty from most major companies and the dealer would be good across the country, not just the shop that did the install.

2002 Honda CRV rear brake running hot. Taken to mechanic says, needs new calipers, brake pads and rotors. Reasonable assumption or can calipers be repaired with kit, rotors re-machined and new pads...


Although calipers can be rebuilt, it's usually more cost effective to buy a rebuilt caliper. As far as turning the rotors, modern day rotors are much thinner than those of 20 years ago. Where in times passed you could turn down rotors 2 or 3 times before replacement, taking a few 1000ths off a newer rotor will take it under factory specs. As far as a reasonable price goes, the full job can run anywhere from $400-600 depending on the shop doing the work. Doing the job yourself you can save a few hundred dollars in labor and another $100 in parts markup.

Rideing down the road 50 mph at times the trans will act like it jumps out of gear at the same time the rpm goes up. just started it after driving 250 miles with no problem. this is a rebuilt trans in 2008...


Check the warranty. Hate to say it, but I know you pay top dollar to have a transmission rebuilt, 3,000 to 4,000 dollars at some places. This doesn't mean that they replaced or put in all new parts, Which at that price I think they should. solenoid packages can run $50.00 to a few hundred dollars and you get charged thousands., no hard parts replaced. And vice versa. Sounds like a solennoid piston, which has orings, is beginning to fail.If were mine the first thing I would do is put a transmission additive in it, Tranx, lucas. These work on the seals/orings. I have used Tranx and it has lasted years. If after time this doesn't solve your problem, have a diagnostic check on the solenoid package and replace if necessary. These are not hard to replace in most transmissions.
Let me know

My out of town son-in-law recently rebuilt the engine on my '95 Jeep Grand Cherokee (V-8). After a few hundred miles the car began running rough. Took it to local mechanic and he said it...


No you can't just replace the round part you have to replace the entire assembly and there is no trick to replacing it, It's really an easy job.

2003 dodge neon transmission issues


Well no metal shavings should be in the filter if there is there is,something is not right internally in your transmission.When there is larger metal shavings in your tranny filter your tranny is probabley gonna have to be rebuilt or replaced.You can try changing the fluid and filter and see if that helps but nore than likely you will need to change out tranny with a new or rebuilt one.

Hi, I am considering buying a 2001 Porsche 911 C4 Carrera Cabriolet with Tiptronic and has 34,000 miles for $29K. Does anyone know if there are any major issues with these cars. Thanks, for any advice....


no major issues to my knowledge. the carerra always reminded me of a highly modified v.w. with only 34.000 miles that car is just broke in. but, before you lay down 29gs. take it for a test run over to a reputable mechanic. to have checked out. if given a clean bill of health. go for it. just give it regular maintain. and you should be good to go for another few hundred thow miles or so..good day

2003 BMW 325i, Metal-on-metal grinding left turn only


This sounds like a wheel bering. If you turn left on a bad passengerside bering it growls louder because more pressure is shifted onto it.
