Look what the tow truck dragged in…..

Catastrophic engine failure due to a loose oil pump bolt! Not a common problem on these cars! Low oil pressure caused a broken connecting rod and the piston to crash into the spark plugs. These pics are of a nice 1993 BMW 740i. Over the next few days we will be doing an engine swap. Luckily we found a donor engine with only 98K miles!
