Usually one of the rod bearings seizes to the crank, destroying it and the crank journal. If the engine is running hard, it can seize and explode, sending chunks of the rod and crank out the side of the engine. It is usually the rod that is furthest from the oil pump. In a Geo Metro, this will be cyl 3.
If I were you I would take it back in and have your oil pump checked. My truck has had that happen before and unfortunately I had to put in a new engine because my oil pump went out and it spun all the bearings and tore up my engine. Try to tow it if you can.
If you have an older, more worn out engine, it could actually be for the better. There'll be less leakage of oil through the piston rings and other fine leaks will be reduced.
If it calls for oil I would use 3 in 1 oil! Located in all local auto parts stores!
Yes, gaskets do go bad on oil pans, I have had this happen to me on a ram van 250. It's a somewhat hard task to replace it, so i would take it to a local dealer or shop.
Baffle plates are used in oil pans to keep the oil near the pick up tube during hard: turning/braking/acceleration. If there wasn't any the oil would all go to 1 side turning a hard turn and the engine would be starved of oil and cause engine damage.
i dont know it stupid
1. Oil resources will never get exhusted because they are natural. Every part of d world has it own free gift of nature.
# No electricity, which means a primary necessity.. # All the transportation will be halt Cause engines need gas to run and gas is one of the many by oil products..
Imagine if oil supplies get exhausted how this will affect your lifestyle.
China would take over the world
Not going to happen but if it did civilization as we know it would cease to exist.
We, then, have to depend on other sources of energy namely solar energy, wind energy, tidal energy, etc. However, pollution due to overuse will be controlled after exhaustion.
There will be drops in financial and economic stocks etc. but our lives will most probably go normally... After all humans survived many years without oil, coal petroleum etc. If the resources like oil get exhausted there is a very high probability that renewable resources like wind energy, solar energy, tidal energy etc. will be researched more seriously and put into use...
If the oil supply get exhausted it will directly effect our kitchen as food is made with the help of oil and all of our vehicles and we will lose the enjoy to drive our automobiles and if it becomes so then the trains airplanes all the thing which were enough fast to make the world small will fail to do so.
there would be no oil and they would fail and lose money.
That would depend what is being exhausted from Natural gas/ OIL # 1,2 ,4 or 6 HUH?
