What a Tuesday!

What a Tuesday!

Got a little crazy here…

On the way to school this morning, my car blew a rod leaving us stranded on the side of the road.  Really messes up my day when something like this happens.

To give you an idea here is a picture of a piston and its rod.


What happens when the rod goes, is the other cylinders continue to move the crankshaft which makes the rod do some major damage to the cylinder.

All said and done, I am now shopping for a new engine.  This one I hope to get turbocharged!.  Might as well get a little more power if I have to upgrade.
