93 ford probe GT, KL-DE 2.5 L V6, I was cruising down the expressway and I noticed that my oil pressure was low, about 25 psi (i installed an aftermarket mechanical gauge) it is usually about 45 psi, so I pulled over and checked the oil it was fine, not low at all. Well when I took off it was knocking at about 2000 rpm, I drove about another 4 miles and the motor locked up, now my question is can I rebuild this motor if it has thrown a rod or crank bearing. Could I just remove the old bearings and put new ones in there as well as piston rings and a hone, and it would run fine or is there more involved in rebuiling a siezed motor. I am a mechanic working for a local repair shop so I have the knowlege on rebuilding I just dont know if I can rebuild this or not. Thank you mike
