Vehicle Engine Locked Up? Let's Hope This Isn't Why

Mechanics Central Related NewsThis is brutal - don't run water in your engine, EVER. This is a good rule of thumb even for the cooling system! Read more of this story , it's pretty funny... I came across this on a mustang forum.

"My car was idling like crap the other day so I figured since I just got it, it may have been awhile since anyone changed the oil out. I decided to go ahead and change the oil. I used Mobile 1 synthentic oil like I was reccomended on here. Anyways, I drain out the oil and noticed it was extremely dark and even after 10 minutes of draining, it was still coming out. I decided to go ahead and flush it to make sure all the bad stuff got out. I hooked up the hose, ran water through the engine, started it up and was waiting for the water to come out clean (The engine never went above idle so I was told this would be ok). Anyways, About 3 minutes into this, then engine starts shaking and shuts off. I figured it was all cleaned out so I plugged it up, added the oil and figured I was ready to go. WRONG! The car won't freaking start now. This car has been nothing but trouble for me, I think I am done with it."

This poor fellow got beat up on the forum, but I will say this; not the first time I have heard of this. I once got a call from a guy who let his (older) father borrow his pick-up truck. Well, he wanted us mobile mechanics to go out and figure out why it couldn't start before he went up to go pick it up - as his Dad complained something was up with it. Well, when our mechanic got out there, turns out he wanted to do some maintenance. He explained to the mechanic that he went ahead and top everything off with water (including the crank case). It actually vapor locked and blew a piston from the PCV (crankcase ventilator) sucking up some milky foam from the water and oil mixing and expanding. This foam is what actually blew the engine!

Anybody else have any other funny / horrible stories similar to these?

Thank you.0.3 rezoh.ru dll for sb1 is now running hapilpy in my SB1 on Win7 Unfortunately when I run:RZGraphicsWindow.SaveContent( C:\capture.bmp )I get an error message: A generic error occurred in GDI+' at System.Drawing.Image.Save(String filename, ImageCodecInfo encoder, EncoderParameters encoderParams) at Rezoh.Ru.RZGraphicsWindow.SaveContent(Primitive FilePath)'- Have I made an idiotic mistake ?Your web page translates very clearly into English using Translate with Bing', so perhaps there is no need to translate the page.Maybe some English-language SmallBasic sample-programs on the page might be helpful ? Of course, it would be very nice l to have the XMLfile or an API description document of rezoh.ru_ .dll , in English language!Thank you again.
