by | Jun 17, 2022 | Automotive

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]To diagnose a failure in your car, you may need to know what the symptoms are. This article will cover the signs and symptoms of a connecting rod failure so you can get it fixed or have it replaced.

Symptoms of an engine connecting rod or piston connecting rod failure can vary depending on the engine type and how severe the damage is. In most cases, you would notice various warning lights on your dashboard or vehicle control panel, which can indicate an issue.

Symptoms that you might be experiencing if your vehicle is having issues with a connecting rod.

  • Knocking Noise

If you are experiencing a knocking noise from your car’s engine, there is a good chance that the connecting rod has failed. This can happen in either the front or the rear engine. The knocking noise will become louder as the rod becomes shorter and causes more damage to the engine. In extreme cases, the engine may fail and require replacement.

  • Low Compression

If you have a failure in your connecting rod, you may experience several symptoms. The most common is a loss of power and torque from the engine. This can lead to problems with acceleration, stopping, and steering. If the failure is severe, the engine may stop running altogether. In extreme cases, the engine could even explode. If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, getting your car inspected as soon as possible is important.

  • Low Oil Or Oil Pressure

If you’re experiencing low oil or oil pressure in your vehicle, there’s a good chance that the connecting rod has failed. This can cause serious engine damage and should be investigated immediately. The symptoms of a connecting rod failure can vary, but they usually include low oil or oil pressure, a loss of power, and difficulty starting the engine.

  • Visibly Bent Or Damaged Rod

If you notice that your car is pulling to one side or making strange sounds, it may be time to check on your connecting rod. A connecting rod failure can cause your car to pull to one side or make weird sounds, and it’s often easy to spot. If the rod is visibly bent or damaged, you’ll need to replace it immediately.

  • Engine Overheating

If you’re experiencing engine overheating, there are several things you can do to try and fix the problem. The first thing is to check the water level in your radiator. If it’s low, the engine may not be getting enough water to cool down properly. Make sure you’re using the right cooling fluid and replacing it as needed. Another common cause of engine overheating is connecting rod failure. If this happens, the engine will overheat and even catch fire. To avoid this, always keep an eye on your car’s temperature and make sure to replace any parts that start to malfunction.
