Which could discount KRA’s comment “unfortunately we are seeing a number of these?"Blocks warping = overheating........ be curious to know if the car had ANY coolant in it.
VERY FEW of the engine failures that have been reported on the SCoA Forum, have hand grenaded without "cause."
Instead MOST seem to be the result of idiot lights being ignored and/or cooling system/fluid levels not being checked.
"when the check engine light came on I took it right away to my mechanic. He said I should go ahead and drive it, and the next day it was towed to his shop."The engine is reliable, can't ignore those other causal influences . . .
