Asked by Jun 05, 2007 at 06:41 PM about the 1981 Chevrolet Corvette

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Can you take the broken rod out by taking the oilpan off to get to crankshaft to undo the broken or bent rod and can you get to the other end of the rod in the piston? Should the whole engine be rebuilt or can it be rebuilt or can a person fix just the damaged rod?

I think the engine would have to be rebuilt, i dont think there is any easy way of replacing a broken rod.
