This is a video document showing how to seize an engine under the Cash for Clunkers program...After draining the engine oil the vehicle is filled with approximately two-three quarts of salt/water/silica mix. The vehicle is then started and ran till the engine seizes. Enjoy!
Motor Blow Up
What a bunch of rednecks do on a saturday afternoon. lol
Subaru Impreza 10000 RPM engine
Takhle vypada subaru motor kteremu upadne ventil v 10000 otackach. - This is Subaru engine, broken valve in 10000 RPM. This was not poorly tuned, EGT and AFR was right, Problem was in material of one of the Cosworth valves, there was air bubble in it and it broke apart. This was not one shot as you think, this car was running few months before this and it is running again fine after repair. But we changed manufacturer of vents :-)
Extreme Engine Failure
This engine was donated to a school's automotive program, had outlived its usefulness, and was scheduled to be sent to the junkyard. By contractual law, it had to be destroyed or re-donated once we were done with it. It could not be sold or parted out. This video was part of a recruiting video hence the music. I'm working on posting the original clip without the music.
Engine Blow up at school
This is what happens when you don't tighten the cam shaft bolts to specs. We took the engine apart and all of the valves needed to be replaced because they were bent. The top of the pistons all had the indentation from the Exhaust and intake valves.
