This video was taken without considering the privacy of the owner of the vehicle... anyone can contact them to verify what happened to the vehicle.
To save you the time and effort and also to prevent too much unnecessary bother to the owner with so much calls and inquiry, we are taking the liberty to update everyone about the subject vehicle in this video.
Recently, about 3 weeks ago more or less as this post is updated (01/21/12), This vehicle ran out of oil due to a physical leak at the oil pan gasket.
It is general knowledge that no engine can withstand to run for so much kilometers without oil lubrication.
In other words... the engine was ran for so much kilometers without oil due to the leak.
The bearings were replaced and it was top overhauled that costed roughly about P13,800.00 in both Labor and Materials.
The lesson learned: Do check the levels of your oil regularly especially if your engines or vehicles are as old as the one shown in this video.
GTO is not mean to cure everything... it is merely a preventive maintenance solution. It cannot cure physical gasket defects or damages... but it can recondition old gaskets but are not yet cooked/ overheated nor cracked.
A normal untreated engine will freeze or stuck up without GTO protection, which could mean - that the owner would have to replace the whole engine or its cylinder block.
Since this engine was treated with GTO, it did not freeze up, but continued to ran until it has reached the threshold limits of the connecting rod bearings which is susceptible to oil starvation.
The connecting rod bearings are always moving in a circular pattern which can throw out oil lubricants easily, and it is only when there is oil present that can be pumped into the oil capillaries... that these bearings are protected.
This only proved that GTO protected the engine from much further and bigger damage.
A used diesel engine like this would cost more than P50K.
