First time making a thread. I have 2 proteges! Hit a puddle and hydrolocked it bad. Rods are the weakest link in this engine. Cylinder 4 was bent into an s shape and was kocking off the crank case so bad it wouldnt turn over by hand. "Crazy rod knock". Made this thread because the car is now fully functioning and all it took was a single piston and rod/bearing replacement. Crank and cast iron block are apparantly indestructible. Thankyou mazda247 i wouldnt have done it without yall.
