1990 Isuzu Trooper 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual 0
I purchased a rebuilt engine from a company named Thundrbolt in Houston, Tx. For the vehicle I listed and had an independent mechanic install it. My vehicle never made it out of my mechanics shop because of engine failure, the thrust bearing was broken. After inspection from a Thunderbolt mechanic he determined it was due to a green o ring that is normally used for a/c applications that was used for the oil pick up screen/tube by my mechanic. Hence, as stated by the thunderbolt mechanic, this caused oil pressure drop and the thrust bearing to break off.
My question is regarding that green o ring that was used for the oil pick up screen/tube, is it only used for a/c applications, will it deteriorate with oil contact and/or be affected in any other way by being used in this particular application and cause oil pressure drop and a thrust bearing to break off. Of note is that this vehicle had never been driven out of the mechanics shop.
I would greatly appreciate your help in this matter as I have already spent 2,200 dollars paying thunderbolt and my mechanic and I'm in a jam with a meager teachers aide salary and am being bounced back and forth between mechanics with no one accepting responsibility.
have the same problem?
