What are the signs of worn out piston rings in a car

Category: Entertainment

Presentation Description

The piston rings are the metal rings that are responsible for regulating the oil consumption and oil pressure in the vehicle’s engine. It seals the combustion chamber for minimizing the loss of gases to the crankcase. Immoderate diametrical clearance between the cylinder liner and the piston rings can lead to piston rings damage. A blocked oil injection jet can be the cause of piston crown damage. Just perform a compression test on your vehicle’s engine, if you believe that your vehicle has faulty piston rings.

slide 2:

Piston rings play a crucial role by sealing the gap between cylinder wall and piston of an engine.

slide 3:

Such rings are metallic split rings which reduces the loss of fuel mixture to the crankcase of the engine.

slide 4:

It also helps to reduce friction between the piston and the cylinder wall as well as it also helps to keep the piston cool by transferring the excess amount of heat to the cylinder of the engine.

slide 5:

However such a soft metallic ring could not withstand the extreme amount of heat generated due to the internal combustion.

slide 6:

Damaged or worn out piston rings could adversely affect the power output of an engine.

slide 7:


slide 8:

Power output of an engine declines due to less compression. POOR ENGINE PERFORMANCE

slide 9:

Deformed piston rings fail to optimize the pressure within the combustion chamber of the engine as a result of which the car struggles to accelerate.

slide 10:

Besides blow by gases could exert heavy pressure on the crank case as well as the PCV system of the car.

slide 11:

So such kinds of warning signs should never be neglected and timely action should be taken to fix the problems.

slide 12:

Piston rings prevent the leakage of oil into the combustion chamber of the engine. EMISSION OF GRAY OR WHITE SMOKE

slide 13:

However damaged rings fail to hold back oil from the combustion chamber of the engine.

slide 14:

As a result of which the oil will burn inside the combustion chamber and produce thick gray smoke.

slide 15:

So emission of an excess amount of thick gray or white smoke from the exhaust system clearly shows that the piston rings need to be replaced.

slide 16:

The engine oil lubricates different components of the engine to reduce friction. LUBRICANT CONSUMPTION INCREASES

slide 17:

Engine oil should be replaced after an interval of about 3000 to 5000 miles.

slide 18:

However an engine with damaged piston rings might need more frequent oil change.

slide 19:

Such kinds of warning signs should never be neglected and timely action should be taken to fix the problems.

slide 20:


slide 21:

Extreme pressure and temperature could damage the piston rings of an engine.

slide 22:

Driving a car with damaged piston rings might trigger certain types of mechanical deformities in the engine.

slide 23:

So signs of deformed piston rings should never be neglected.
