2005 Opel Corsa • 140,000 miles

My car a Opel Corsa 1.6i 2005 Brake down I notice exesive smoke from the exhaust and pull over switch the car off open the bonnet and touch the engine it was not hot when I try to start the car again it did not start the car was towed in, the diagnosis was the head gasket The head was send for machining and after a astronomical account I was happy to get my car back after 3 weeks My first long distance that I do after the head was done the car brake down again They say two conrods broke and 2 holes in the block Now I need a new engine The Garage that worked on the car claim that they worked on the top and not the bottom of the engine they refuse to take responsibility What cause a conrod to brake?

We dont' have info on these cars but alot of things cause con rod breakage, lack of oil in engine for one, water getting in top and bending it causin t it to break. Bolts losing torque, worn rod bearings, etc.
