I have a 1987 kx 125 just put topend gasket set in with piston and rings and coolent is getting in the case bottom end anyone know why plz help me

It sounds as if you have rebuilt the engine without torqueing the head bolts. Although, it could be that the cylinder base gasket has been torn during the rebuild. Try to re-tighten the head bolts to the correct settings first. Good luck.

I have a 2004 Gallardo (24,000) and one of the pistons has just gone and the one next to it is scored and has no compression. The rest of the engine appears ok, I live in south of England. Does anyone know...

Your engine would need to be disassembled and inspected to first make sure that your engine block is viable to be rebuilt and second to discern the actual damage that occured and to try and figure out what caused this in the first place to hopefully stop it from reoccuring in the future. If you have a cylider that has lost compression it is usually one of these things: a crack in the cylinder wall, a blown piston (usually the head) or the piston rings have blown out. I would suggest checking the cylinder walls to assess the damage ( they can be honed if they are not gouged) also check your main and connecting rod bearings (specifically if they are seized or show signs of excessive wear as this will tell that you may have a problem with oil circulating through your engine and that could have caused your engine failure. As to the cost it will be expensive as to a referral contact the manufacturer directly for there input to that matter. good luck

I sank my 91 toyota 4runner and have a knocking in the engine.

If by "sank" you mean submerged in water while the engine was running you probably bent a conecting rod or broke a piston. Water does not compress and if the engine ingested water you have done some major internal damage. No quick fix for this, the engine has to be rebuilt.

2000 Jeep Wrangler has the pistol broken according to a mechanic estimate. Car is shaking very much. I like to know how to repair this issue. Thanks

Pistol? No such animal in an engine. If you mean piston I can't see how they could tell you that without tearing the engine down. If a piston has broken usually it will damage a cylinder wall. Unless the engine is completely torn down and the cylinders are re-machined and fitted with new oversize ones, no repair is going to work.(not correctly)
If you have a bad set of rings or a bad wrist-pin, that can be done but generally that is still expensive.
Likely your best solution would be a good scrapyard engine or a rebuilt one.
Before going further though you should get a second opinion from another good shop. Since being online prevents anyone from looking at or doing the appropriate tests, that is something you need to have done.

2005 CRF250R motor rebuilt but smokes blue

You know what they always say about the color of smoke... blue is oil, white is water and black is  i don't know lol.   Anyhow, if it was just recently rebuilt and you're getting blue smoke then oil is making it into your pistons OR you are burning off oil somewhere when it gets hot.  If you are seeing the smoke from the exhaust only, then think about piston rings, head gaskets, all the typical stuff that gets replaced on a rebuild.  It's near impossible to say exactly where to look so that's the best I can tell you.  I would lean more toward the piston rings.
Good Luck
