Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

Having repeat internal engine failures would be rare and not likely to be related. Unless there is an outside factor such as going through water or abuse, if the engine was replaced as an assembly then I wouldn't expect the failure of the second one to be related to the failure of the first.

Was the replacement a used engine?
