|I Need Help With My Car by Nobody: 4:31pm On Sep 12, 2012|
To whom it may concern.
I drive a 2005 Toyota camry and the car hasnt given any major problem since i bought it.However ,on monday,i was doing 190km/h on the freeway when the car suddenly went off.when it stopped,i tried to put on the engine but it wasnt starting. I checked the battery but it was ok.so i decided to call my mechanic to meet me up.
He checked the kickstarter,it was ok too and he decided to check the engine.on bringing down the engine,he discovered that it was the oil pump that failed thereby causing the metal in the crankshaft to wear odd and eventually affecting the crankshaft.
My doubt now is that what could be responsible for such wear in order to avoid or take better precautuon in the future ? Could it be that my engine which wasnt gauged was responsible for the problem considering the speed ? The mechanic asked me to change the crankshaft,oil pump,connecting rod and service my gearbox. . . .will all this solve the problems with the car ? Please advise me on what to do ?

Did you throw a rod, or spin a bearing at 190kph?
If the thin died at high speed because of no oil, it means you ignored all the warning light on your car.
Simple fix is to get a new/used engine trying to rebuild that is not recommended.

I'd say he spun a bearing.

I concur but why is the mechanic saying he needs to change his gearbox too?
