The Fun Ends....R.I.P.

If you guys followed my last thread, my cobalt had a misfire issue, well the day i took it to the road it was finally fixed car ran fine, no misfire no weird sputtering no anthing....While my mom and i were driving up to college the worst thing possible happend...I heard a loud BANG! and suddenly i heard something bouncing outta the undercarriage, i saw smoke and smelled burnt oil, engine died so i pulled over, i pop the hood, engine oil everywhere, My engine blew up :( we got it towed to the nearest chevy dealership and they said warranty wont cover it just cuz of my exhaust, its a catback exhaust btw, and they want $4500 plus labor for a new motor, we decided to let the insurance just handle it as a total loss...R.I.P. Skids I Will truly miss you. I had so many great memories with that car. You will always be my first car :'(



we moved it forward to show all of what it dumped...





R.I.P. Skids the Cobalt :(

R.I.P. :(

woah woah hold the ****ing phone
1. That dealership better prove that your exhaust is the reason the engine blew up.
Magnuson?Moss Warranty Act - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
2. What actually happened that caused it to blow up?
3. why you on steelies?
