thrown rod


Recommended Posts

Ok i really need some advice from someone that knows. First the car was sent to a shop to get the valves adjusted. i picked the car up and noticed a loss of power 7 miles from leaving the shop it started jerking back and forth in first gear and knocking seemed to come from top and bottom so i shut it down it hadnt ran for a year in that year the distributor got stolen, i put the distributor on today and had to rev it to get it to start. it then threw a rod and cracked the block. So question does that mean he is in the clear and it isnt his fault or could the valves have anything possibly to do with this. need advice would a specialist still be able to tell if the valves were to tight or to loose?

Any rights you had as a consumer have long expired. You should have called the shop right away.

I did it hadnt ran because it was in the law suit, so i had contacted the shop. My attorney told me to get it runnig because the courts said to take it to an expert, the expert wanted it running so i got it running then threw the rod

not to mention that if you didnt change fluids etc and take precaution before starting the motor you could have been the cause of it

i checked all fluids and had a certified mechanic there before starting it, i think the rod is on me, but i got a call today from the expert today and he said the valves were adjusted too tight i just wander if that could have affected the bottom of the motor.

this is my first time posting in this area so dont get all mad just wanting to help but if the expert seen it running he should be able to go to court and say hey this is what was wrong. but you should have called the shot right then and told them hey the car is not running right you need to come and pick it up and see if you can fix it. but srry i cant help anymore. but i still dont think that would hvae cause a thrown rod but good luck and get me update and, something eles what state are you in and i will search the laws for you on cars and shops and see what i can find for you dude. but srry for your lost
