    I'm not a car engineer but firstly why would someone do that? If they wanted to do damage to your car they would key the paintwork. Seems a lot of effort for not much damage. A small stone in the oil however could be an issue. It would get caught up in the overhead cam system. If this has happened it may require having the rocker cover removed (or whatever the top cover of the engine is called) and checking. What would be worse than a small stone would be sand, which would get down through the value system and bugger up the cylinders. Got some enemies??!

    Unfortunately the world is increasingly full of idiots and duchebags and most of the UK based ones also drive on our crowded roads. Disinhibition seems to rule behind the wheel of a car, with white van drivers (tradesmen) and taxi drivers being among the worst.

    the reason I got rid of my Honda is someone had damaged the radiator by shoving a screwdriver into it repeatedly making it imposible to fix and to expensive to fit a new one. to be honest if crooks want to be in or under the bonnet they have ways.

    I can't think of anything more appropriate than posting a technical automotive-vandalism question in a chess forum!

    It is possible for someone to prize open a bonnet and tamper with the motor, yes. I hope for your sake this has not happened.

    Why wouldn't the oil filter catch it?
