Default Corrosive liquid

I study mechanics and got some HM which is the most corrosive liquid for engine bearings and internal parts? I mean a liquid that could mix with oil and eat up the bearings or make oil liquid and cause the engine to get wasted. I cannot find much info on this, would be really happy if someone helped me out.

Im not sure I really understand what you are asking.... but if Im on track with you, the most likely liquid to get in your oil and eat bearings etc. would be coolant from a bad head gasket or splayed 4 bolt mains without sealant on the threads. That will harm your engine quickly.

How about plain old water?

Not a fluid, but valve seat grinding compound can reek havoc.

the answer is prety much that susc a liquid doesnt exist... acids are dissociated in water.. and since oil is a hydrophobic substance any charged ion wont dissolve in it...

as for destroying bearings, .... best way would be to gut an oilfilter and fill it half way up with fine gritt sand or coarse grinding paste mixed with oil and and change the "filter"....

If I wanted to sabotage someone's car I'd take the oil out or pour metal shavings inside oil, its the easiest way to block the pickup tube and no oil will be going through the engine buddies. Just an experiment jaja.

Well bleach did make oil more liquid, I am not fighting over this and am not someone with lots of knowledge but that's what I obtained. Thanks to everyone, didn't have a chance to get to do the brake liquid test but I may do it later on.

Try xylene or toulene. Both are very strong chemicals we use to remove concrete sealers/clean sprayers. I've seen them take powerder coating right off of a chemical sprayer before. I was rolling xylene on a large pool deck one time for a couple hours to recolor it and it began to MELT the bottoms of my work boots and i was leaving melted rubber boot prints on the concrete.

This will turn your oil to less than water consistency i guarantee it. It liquifies our high temp moly bobcat grease instantly. You can get both at Wal-mart in small metal containers.
