adam32 Posted December 12, 2013 Report Share Posted December 12, 2013 (edited) The Experimental thread got me thinking. We always hear about engine failures in aircraft, sometimes catastrophic, sometimes something of an easy fix...most of the time the aircraft falls from the sky. And I think most of us have many many more hours driving a car down the road, and yet I've never had an engine just up and quit on me. And we all know we take care of our vehicles much much better then aircraft...I mean that 3000 (usually turns into 5000+) mile oil change is about all the maintenance our engines get...lol So if aircraft engines are so much more advanced over automotive engines then why do they seem to fail a lot more?
