The real causes for a cracked engine blocks in car

ΜΙKE JOH NS IMPORTS THE REAL CAUSES FOR A CRACKED ENGINE BLOCKS IN CAR Engine blocks of your car are designed to handle the rigors of ordinary driving as well as the harsh one. Cracks in engine blocks usually require replacement and repairs can be done in some instances, but it's not always possible. So, along with enjoying the power also failure does occur in your car. THE PRIME CULPRIT IS OVERHEATING While there are many underlying causes of cracked engine blocks, they almost all involve excess heat. Engine coolant works to keep the overall engine within the operating temperature, but extreme overheating changes things. In these instances, the coolant isn't enough to keep all of the block cool. The overheated portions expand while the cooler areas don't and the result is stress on the block and then an engine-killing crack. SO, LET'S SEE THE FACTORS THAT LEAD TO OVERHEATING. Low coolant is the primary cause of overheating. LOW COOLANT When one runs the engine with the low coolant light on, they should expect to suffer some very serious problems. Water pump failure is another thing that can lead to severe overheating and a cracked block. WATER PUMP Without a functional water pump, the coolant can't flow through the system and cool as it is designed to do. FAILURE During the injection molding process, a shift in the mold's sand can cause the block's metal to be thinner than necessary in certain areas. CASTING FAILURE Over time and with the application of heat (expansion and contraction), these thin areas can crack. Adding turbocharger to an engine not designed for one can create a situation in which the engine has more power than it can handle. OVERPOWERING This creates extra flexing and expansion in the block and overheating due to overpowering results in a cracked block.
