French term or phrase: pastille de dessablage
The term is from a vehicle fault finding manual. The sentence is 'Fissures sur le carter cylindre côte distribution dues à l'emmanchement d'une pastille de dessablage de diamètre 50mm.' Does anyone know what a pastille de dessablage is in this context?

grit (removal) filter disc
Explanation:
I imagine this is some sort of grit removal (dessablage) filter, perhaps on the oil system. In your case presumably the wrong size has been fitted, cracking the block. But I'm not claiming to be sure!
