Can you blow an engine if the rpm is too high? I've never heard of it happening except in drag racers and in video games, but never actually seen it or heard of it happening in a normal car

    Generally, a blown engine is used to refer to an engine that seizes. Mostly it happens due to overheating of the engine or low levels of engine oil. This causes the engine to stop working. All car owners need to follow some general maintenance to reduce the possibility of their car engine seizing. There are some useful technical maintenance tips which I came across at page that helps all car owners to reduce their car maintenance expenses as well as helps them to retain their car’s performance.

    I believe that if an engine has too much pressure building up within, and no way to contain it, it would blow. Am i right?
