105K Manual transmission
I acquired this car in a trade. It had an bad engine. After investigation the engine had blown up and broke the block on the back side near the #1 rod. This engine was a replacement from a wrecking yard. So I bought another used engine and it had a rod knock from the front half of the engine. The yard exchanged it for me. Well after 41.2 miles of driving this engine blew up. Guess what? It threw the #1 rod. Same as the engine I took out the first time.
So my question is, Is this a common problem? I am willing to swap an engine one more time but that is it. Can I use a newer or older style engine that is a direct bolt in? So far I think that Saturns are junk. Thanks for the help, David
have the same problem?
