Ouch.........

This started as a slight clicking noise to my 2004 F4 EVO3.

To be safe I took it to the dealers who stripped the engine completely, charged me a small fortune and told me that there was absolutely nothing wrong with it!

They told me to run it in as per a new engine and 500 miles later this is the result....

got one thing to say....

JB WELD





seriously though, good luck in getting a resolution from the dealer.

A gun is not a weapon. It's a tool, like a butcher's knife, or a harpoon, or an alligator.

Hopefully he gave you a warranty on the engine rebuild.

Would I be right in saying that the big end bearing / conrod has let go. Looks that way but cannot be sure with the pics.

If so, see if you can locate the big end bolts and if the have let go as previously suggested check if the nuts are still fitted on the bolts.

2 options:
  • The big end bolt has snapped
  • The nuts may not have been tightened correctly and have come loose causing the destruction.
Either way the rebuilder has some explaining to do.


I feel your pain!!
