Indicative Of Another Problem

a: Bent push rod ~
b: a blown fuse

What: "A bent push rod is like a blown fuse! What caused it to happen? Usually it happens when the piston hits the valve while the valve is open! That cannot happen unless the valve stuck open or the valve timing is incorrect. A valve might stick open from lack of lubrication, but that would be a bad sign that the engine was run without oil."
