s 600 blown engine
Thanks. I guess the mechanic thought that all the extra fuel "washed all the oil off the pistons and caused the rings to burn" I don't want to pretend to be any sort of mechanic these days, but apparently the pistons are silicon lined and the valves are chrome, so they should be pretty resilient. I thought about the catalytic converters, though. Someone said that we should have smelled something burning, and we didn't so hopfully it was a brief enough event that they weren't damaged.
