Hi

Just coming home in the car when suddenly had a large pop noise from the engine, and noises as though bits were dropping off and hitting the underside of the car, there is oil sprayed out in the engine compartment, although the engine still runs. The biggest concentration of oil is on the n/s underneath inlet manifold.

This happened with no warning signs and no prior problems.

Does anyone have any ideas what could be wrong and is it fixable and at what sort of cost?

Thanks for the reply. This is not something my husband can fixed himself looking at the haines manual, its too advanced for him, is it going to be a very expensive repair at a garage, or not worth it?

Thanks

How does the engine sound? was it still running sweet after the bang?

How much oil was in the car? when was it last checked?

TBO it sounds bad news, sounds like a rod has gone through the block! seen it myself

Hi Ronnie

Thanks for the reply.

Husband said it was still running but very poorly. Noise seemed to increase as you throttled back, oil was was at the correct levels before this happened, engine will not idle but will keep running if the accelorator is pressed slightly.
