Car is 4 cylinder Astra. !.4 engine no turbo charge. Last service 8500kms. Missed 2 services, rings in number two piston failed at 44000kms. Oil level always maintained. Car only driven on sealed roads. Would missing 2 services cause rings to fail?
Probably not but if you are looking to make a warranty claim and you did not follow the recommended service intervals, then they can probably deny the claim as there is some relation to engine oil changes and a problem with piston rings.
