the case would hold no water in court. when you throw a rod its usually a result of careless over reving.
other ways an engine could blow.
-lack of coolant.
-lack of oil and or oill changes.
-use of unreccomended oil grade at cold climate temps. this results in a thicker oil hence increasing the friction on the lube points of the oil.
-cracked head allowing oil to mix with collant would wipe out the bottom end.
the list is pretty much endless those are just common causes.
the pistons are not checked during a tune up to check them it would require a tear down of the engine both top and bottom end.
