Another Toyota GR86 Suffers Engine Failure At The Track
All is well until the 6:11 mark when you can hear a weird sound, presumably coming from the engine bay. Everything went south from that point as the sound started to escalate. Then, at 7:14, smoke entered the cabin, prompting a warning light and notification on the gauge cluster. The Toyota GR86 broke down soon after, leaving the driver stuck on the race track.
Liu told CarBuzz via email that his car was towed to a Toyota dealership which was inspected and deemed to have a hole on top of the engine block. He was quoted $13,000 for the replacement.
But the owner doubts whether Toyota checked his GR86’s oil pan to see if there’s a hint of room temperature vulcanizing (RTV) silicone. RTV is said to have the tendency to clog the oil pickup tube, which could result in engine failure due to lack of oil.
