Angry Look what I found :(

I posted a couple a weeks ago about taking my car to the mechanic and him telling me I needed a new motor. Well, we brought it back home and took of the bottom of the motor and look what was in there :

That's right my piston broke into about 10 pieces. That would explain the terrible noise. So, we are in the process of tryin to fix her. I can't wait to drive her again it has been almost 4 months

Not really sure, it started throwing codes about the 4th cylinder and the 4th injector. So, I got new injectors and put some engine cleaner and gas cleaner in and it seemed to be fine. I drove it to work and back and when i pulled in the driveway the engine cut off. I started her back up and the noise was really bad. So, now here I am :(

That's wild, I used to only see stuff like that when I worked the pits at the drag strip.

Are you going to rebuild, or get a new/remanufactured engine?

I don't know how it broke into 10 pieces, that is how we found it when we took the motor apart.
