Hi. I was told by a mechanic that my cars engine is gone. I was shifting gears while driving and he said that apparently the force caused the engine to blow. I would like more information on this and if this can cause a engine to blow.
*I was going about 60km an hour when I put the car into gear 3 then 2 then 1 while applying gas to get an increase in speed. When I stopped the car at a light and tryed to apply gas the car shut of. Then when I would attempt to start the engine the entire engine was shaking and making a very horrible grinding/rubbing noise while stalling. It did drive once for half a block then stalled again and then I had it towed to a mechanic.
So whats your opinion on this. Can this cause the engine to blow? I did the gear shift thing about 3 or 4 times within a few days and everything was fine but then this time this happened. Please any help would be greatly appreciated. Thankyou
