replace the engine ================== The engine would at least have to be removed, cylinder head removed, oil pan removed, and new bearings installed with rods. If you get that far, you may as well overhaul the engine with new rings, seals, bearings, valve job, resurface cylinder head etc.. Either that or yes, get another engine. Either way its a lot of work or even more money to have a shop do it. -Shaun

The cheapest way to go is to find a good used engine to put in it. By the time you fix your engine correctly you will have 2 or 3 grand in it.

A broken connecting rod usually calls for replacing the "short block" at the minimum. The motor most likely has damage to the crank and block. Either replace the bottom end or another motor. There is a possibility that it could be overhauled but I dont think its likely

No. Blow by means that compression is leaking past the rings into the crankcase. Other than burning oil and fouling the motor with exhaust and carbon, reduced power is the biggest result of blow by. A thrown rod means that the connecting rod has broken off and is swinging freely around inside the motor. A thrown rod is usually caused when the rod bearing seizes. Because the rod cannot rotate around the crank, the rod breaks off. This is a lubrication issue caused by low or no oil pressure. A thrown rod can also be caused if water or other uncompressable fluids are swallowed into the motor. This will bend the connecting rod leading to breakage.

A good way to fix a broken customized rod would be with electrical conduit. It is easy to use and most customized rods have a basic inside rod that can be matched with electrical conduit.

This is an excellent article on how to replace the inner tie rod bushings, which are a common problem. http://www.allpar.com/fix/intrepid-steering.html

AnswerThe part is not expensive, say 20 bucks, then you need an alignment, and that's what 40 bucks or so. True, it is about twenty to thirty bucks for an outer tie rod. However, an inner tie rod is a bit more. And, a more tiresome process to change.

You don't fix it, you just replace it. After replacing it get an alinement.

The best way to fix it is by replacing the curtain rod itself. It's not expensive at all. You can find a step-by-step video on how to replace it yourself on the internet.

The first sign that your engine has thrown a rod is a knocking sound that comes from the engine when it runs. if you pay close attention, you will notice that the knocking sound is rhythmic and increases or decreases in accordance with the engine's revolution per minute (RPM).
