Kent, Mike, Jimmy car guys, damaged motor question
I found a very nice S2000 with low miles for an awesome price.. Clear title, nice suspension upgrades, exhaust, etc. BUT!..... the guy said "his buddy" (its always the friend) didn't tighten the oil filter all the way and it was driven for a day with low oil and it "fried a piston ring"... The car still runs but what is involved in fixing this?? new pistons,rings, honing the cylinders or am I looking at a new motor? If the motor still runs it cant be THAT bad right? (If I sound like a rookie I am, My dad and I had my XR75 bored out and thats it the only experience I have with cylinder work)
The price is good enough that im still considering it even if I need to spend a couple thousand to put a whole new motor in...
