The Term "Blown Engine"

Who uses the term "Blown engine" or "I blew my truck up"?

What is the correct definition of "Blown Engine"? Is it a rod that has gone through the block? A head gasket that has popped? Melted piston? Scored cylinder wall? No compression or just a engine that wont run and you dont know what is wrong with it?

IMO, you dont blow a engine up. You lifted a head, melt a piston/cylinder, window the block. Specifics....

The term gets thrown around to loosely. When I hear/read blown engine I think of a supercharged engine, but thats just me.

I think the term covers a broad range of issues. It denotes the need for major repairs.

Blown motor, melted pistons- either way would of cost me 15k on a job1 6.4. Told Ford Motor Credit to get Ford to get there head out if their *** and (A) fix my truck or (B) they would be hung with a $40,000 note on a truck that would auction for less then $7,000 w/out a motor. The cork suckers apparently chose B. Oh well.
