Engine Mechanical problem
1999 Chevy Van V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 90,000 miles
After the radiator was replaced, the mechanic failed to correctly connect the oil cooling line that runs from the engine to the radiator. All the oil was lost and after a few minutes the van engine died. When the oil was replaced and the line was correctly connected the dealer reported a significant drop in the oil pressure. After driving the van for a few hours the engine seized and the crankshaft failed. The mechanic thought the damage was caused buy his failure to correctly connect the oil line and the resulting running the engine without oil. Did running the engine without oil cause this damage?
