'Abgang' is more likely: Departure!
Related is the word: 'Abgas', wich means: Exhaust!
The word for piston seizure, says 'piston-eater' If directly translated :-o
'Nebenpleuelstangen' is more likely: Secondary connectingrods!
'Zugang' is more likely: Access!

Almost none dictonarys, hardshell or online, can handle tecnical stuff.
A friend of my youth got a, for me unknown until that, special tecnical dictonary to support his study as naval engineer :-o
My langual background is to stand between the German and English languages, of wich I'm educated in during my schoolyears, but as a keen motorcyklist I have widened my basic learnings to include the tecnical genre by intense reading of German and English motorcycle-magazines ;-)

I just realises that the secondary connection rods is related to radial engines where there is one main connection rod with grip around the cranck on wich all others (secondarys) are mounted!
