2020 C8 Corvette Engine Blows While Driving!

c8 corvette engine

We all know this is the first run most coveted car the C8 Corvette. And with that and any first run car there are going to be some issues.

For example we noticed someone that got 1 of the first 2,700 C8 Corvettes produced and their transmission went out and was obviously a bad batch.

Now in this recent C8 Corvette Review with Tall Guy Car Reviews he took MidwestRide’s C8 Corvette for a test drive and review and while they were driving it the engine seized.

So far what we know from MidwestRide’s YouTube update on the blown engine there were metal shaving in the oil filter. Since that’s all we know for now we suggest any C8 Corvette owner go get your first oil change at the 500 mile break in and don’t wait until the first suggested oil change for the C8 Corvette which is 7,500 just to be on the safe side.

We have to say with already 2,700 out there and C8 Corvette production started again only hearing maybe 1 or 2 bad apples is still a good sign of a quality built first car and like any first run on a new model built by ANY car manufacturer there are going to be some bugs or bad things to sort out.

It doesn’t even have to be a first run car. There are plenty second, third, fourth year cars of the same model that have issues with any car brand.

As we mentioned, be on the safe side and go get the first oil change on your corvette C8 at right after the 500 mile break in when the tach changes and they let loose on the RMPs.

This was the 2nd C8 Corvette Engine that seized up per MidwestRide Part 3 Update and the engine is being shipped to Detroit, MI for the engineers to take a look at it.

He also mentioned the 500 mile break in period is for the DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission) and Engine not just the Engine.
