What are the defects?

A crack may occur on the cylinder contact surface in the engine, the piston may be damaged or seize during the vehicle’s service life. This could cause the piston to get jammed in the cylinder, which would lead to engine damage. The possibility of the conrod being torn off and the crankcase being pierced, and subsequently of oil escaping, cannot be ruled out, this could result in an engine stall (loss of engine power).

What are the hazards?

A sudden loss of engine power increases the risk of an accident and injury or death to vehicle occupants or other road users.
