Re: Why did my Engine explode?
Gas does this. First I would check the PCV is OK, then start looking at stem seals etc.
My mate in Dianella had an EB wagon, dual fuel, leaked gas back through the PCV all night and in the morning when he started it, it cracked the block, melted pistons, etc.
This is why I'll NEVER buy a Falcon on gas! :)
Oh yeah also make sure the gas is shutting off properly, apparently sometimes it can stay on a little and leak when the motor's off.
