You talking about a main bearing or a rod bearing? And is it a thrust bearing if it is a main?

But to answer your question, I don't know of a specific example of that. It is however, something that can happen to ANY engine and usual causes include very old age, lack of proper maintenence, and other mechanical failures. The latter2 of which are generally somehow related to a lack of proper lubrication for that bearing.

take it back to who changed the oil and make them pay.
buy not filling it back up it just caused excessive (sp) wear to your main and rod bearings. if you heard a noise it did damage!!!!!!!!!!!!:mad:

that's some scary **** right there

my car has a ****** oilpain design, and takes a few seconds for the oil pressure to build after an oil change, and THAT freaks me out, and that's just 5 seconds or so....

i can't believe you drove it home like that

i'd ****ing kill someone
