What happens if you pour Washer fluid into the engine?

By Faiming_low on 27 Jul 2017 in Engine

Attached Image What happens if you pour washer fluid into the engine? Here's your answer: Lots of goo-like substance and an engine that damaged beyond repair.

As seen on Carscoops, a MINI owner in Germany has poured washer fluid into her engine when the car prompted her that it is running low on washer fluid. No reason were given on why she poured it into the engine instead of the opening for the washer fluid.

Attached Image After five litres of the fluid went into the engine, she realised that lots of blue smoke came out from her exhaust and she took the car to the workshop. As soon as the mechanics open up the engine, they were presented by a thick, foamy sludge covered the engine. It was the same underneath as much of the block and engine sump were covered in the same thick goo.

Nothing was said on how the issue was sorted out but it is very likely that the engine has been damaged beyond repair.

No reason?

"SHE poured it"

Enough said.
