The turbo versions if run extremely hard- all the time- without proper maintenance of course the car will fail after an extended period of time...just like any other engine. The non turbo stealths are bullet proof...but please continue to maintain them regularly.

Is a car engine in good condition when a head gasket is replaced?

This is a complex question: The failure that caused the head gasket to fail MAY have done other damage But ... and there is always a BUTT Some cars are prone to this failure and replacement of the gasket means it will never need to be done again with no other harm to the engine, (original Dodge Neon for example) Other cars where the gasket fails and it means the car has been over heated and the engine is Damaged (8.2 liter Detroit Diesel is a good example) So the only way to know is to run it and see.

Does the rotary engine can last longer than piston engine?

Usually not. The seals in a rotary that does the job of the piston rings in a piston engine have a much harder job to do, and tend not to last as long. Agreed. The "Wankel" was a good concept, an engine with one moving part but never lived up to it's potential. The above answer is an excellent example. The trouble mostly came from balancing the rotor, as it did not rotate in a perfect 360 degree circle and oil seals were prone to failure

Cools engine by cooling engine oil that runs through a A/C or Transmission looking cooler. It may run through your radiator that has extra fins built into it and is separate from coolant.

CON: Some types are prone to leaks or being damaged causing loss of oil and worse a complete loss of oil resulting in engine damage or failure.

Is the 407 turbo diesel prone to breakdown?

Hi there,It all depends what model/engine you get.Ive got the 1.6hdi engine (DV6TED4). This engine is used in most fords/masdaz etc.In the 407 however, this engine is susseptable to turbo failure. Mainly because its always under load. (such a heavy car and such a small engine). My engine has done 110k and is on its second turbo.It is kept realitivly clean compared to the 2.0hdi. It also averages 60mpg and it is much more reliable compared to the 2.0hdi. It is much easier to maintain, as most of the components are visable unlike the tucked away 2.0 .

It is probably a lack of fuel, try the simple stuff first like changing the fuel filter.
