I know I am not the only one in that case. But we are not here to discuss that. I'm here to get some facts and figures. Not opinions, or what a mechanic said, just the empirical evidence. That's it. My question to you is how far has your engine come on the rod bearings? Points to include: Are you still running the original bearings from the Factory with no issues Did yours have the recall done and are you still on those shells Did you change yours as a precaution? If so, when? Was it even necessary Did you change yours because they were toast? What mileage and age did things go wrong at? If the following can be put on that would also be superb: -Year of the car -Type and oil and filter done -Servicing intervals you do Hopefully the poll should make things easier to see. P.S : Can a mod make the poll multiple choice? I forgot to tick the box and I can't delete the thread and start again!
