Answers :

Rust can be caused by leaving a car outside in the snow all winter, it can be caused by driving in he snow when they use salt on the roard andif the car has been on the coast it will rust. if there is rust inside the engine it may be due to a bad water pumps or a bad head gasket, my advise to you is walk away from it.

I have a Jag XJSC V12 1988 in good condition except a seized engine after 2 years idle. What do you recommend / try to start doing? Replacing the engine is quite expensive and as a first choice not an option. Would it be possible to use some rust remover and then try to rotate the engine? In case recommendable what type of rust remover would you suggest? If not possible I have heard that in USA there is a kit available based Chevy 350 engine, Do you have any hints about such an option ? Rega

Ref ture 889 Siezed engine Jag 1988 XJSC V12 aut. Red your recommendation , but if it is rust in cylinders which caused the seizing? How to check if it is siezed pistons or siezed crank ? My own idea is that if siezed crank it would be dead siezed, but if siezed pistons there might be some play in crank bearings which would be possible to detect over the valve train. If siezed pistons due to rust in cylinders would it be possible to use some kind of rust remover to loosen the pistons. I will

I have a 2006 Dodge Charger with the 2.7 liter engine. I got this car free from my dad and it is absolutely beautiful but the engine needs to be replaced.

I was wondering if you can help me with some information. I own a 99 Boxter which I purchased in 2002. In 2005, at 58,000 miles I had to replace the engine for unknown reason (2 weeks after the dealer performed one thousand dollar 60,000 maintenance check). The dealer refused to tell me the reason stating it would cost me a lot of money for them to find out. They put a rebuilt engine in my car at the cost of $10,000 with 2 year warranty. Due to many problems after the replacement, the dealer Sin
