Re: dropped liner

The liner is what the piston runs in or the piston liner,

Re: dropped liner

Dropped sleeves and cracked cylinder liners can be caused by the head being very slightly warped when you have an engine build.

Re: dropped liner

Was this on a hatch? They seem to be having a few 'build' issues with the 2.5 engines. The JDM 2.0l seems fine.
