Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
had one of my oil rings blow out on me. Do i need a lot of equipment or anything like that? Some kind of compressor?
You don't need a compressor but it does make things easier. You will need to remove the oil pan, cylinder head, timing belt, intake manifold, exhaust manifold, and the power steering pump moved to the side. Be sure to line up the timing marks before removind timing belt. If you have a broken oil ring it is likely that it scored the cylinder wall and there will need to be further repairs needed. If it is stuck and allowing oil by it you will only need to replace the oil ring. If you have gone this far you may want to replace all rings and check the rod bearing clearences to be sure they are within tolerance.
