New to the site..
Just looking for some info really. We bought a second hand mondeo back in July and after 19 days we broke down on the motorway. The car wont start and it is suspected that the con rod has come through?! (girly terms.. i apologise!)
Here is a photo of what we can see in the engine.. any ideas?
the issue we are having with the trader is that he is saying the likely cause of this is due to poor maintenance.. (after 19 days???!) and that it's something to do with the oil.
We checked the oil level before we purchased the car and it was fine.. i've now checked the oil level.. as we didnt do is since we've had the car.. and its looking something like this..
Is it likely that due to the oil it would have caused this con rod thing to come through? If so how do you think we will stand in Court in reclaiming our money as we have just issued it in the small claims court as the trader is sayin the onus is on us to ensure daily appropriate servicing...!?
Thanks in advance
