Blown VQ35de......

Postby deletedalien » Tue Jun 30, 2015 4:06 pm

Hi guys...

so it is with sad regret that i post this thread because on the last oil change (about 2 weeks ago) i noticed that dreadful glitter in the used oil..... so its not REALLY a lot of it and there is no rattle on the engine but iv'e been around long enough to know what that means.....


so in your guys expertise, what do you think might have caused this, or in other words...
what usually tends to give up in these engines? i haven't had a chance to open it up and will probably have a friend rebuild it...
but i think/hope that it will be the conrod bearings and NOT the main bearings, also I've heard that the oil pump is pretty pricey on these, is that true?


Thanks in advance for any input.
