Default Re: Engine problems continued

I've had bad rod bearings in Chevy's tap like that. They are usually badly worn but not spun. Let them tap very long like that and the rod will usually come out through the side of the block.

What year model is your PT? There was a crankshaft/thrush washer issue with either 2006 or 2007 models that came with auto transmissions. It might be possible that your crank is moving forward or back far enough off the oil vein to quit oiling one or more rod bearings.

But a more likely scenario is that whatever caused the bad valve is also at fault here. Could the earlier owner have run the car out of oil sometime in the past and caused localized undue engine wear that's just starting to cause problems now?
