Well, I can't believe what I thought in the first place is probably true at such low mlg.
When the piston rings/lands fail it has always been only one piston in a engine that is a problem, usually No 1 or 4.
If the fluid just poured "straight through" it won't just be an oval bore.
I can't believe that no one will just drop the sump and pull the rod and piston so they can actually see what the full damage is - absolutely stupid - I cannot believe they have not done it.
Is there actually no person at the dealership who would like to see the piston
Don't know about needing a "wet test", looking down at the faulty piston you should be able to see signs of the problem at a minimum.
These modern day technicians and processes/procedures just do my head in.
I have not seen this type of failure damage any bores yet. If you had got to pay for it you can quite easily buy a set of non genuine, up market pistons and the job is done
So, in approx 22 days they have managed to remove a cylinder head and pour some fluid down the bores to decide its a piston failure - wow eeeeee - thats about actually 2 hours of work
