well i was driving last nite and hit a pair of railroad tracks at a descent speed and cracked the oil pan, i didn't kno it was leaking oil and it then stalled out, i got it running again to a place where i can park it. can anyone tell me what the possible damage is and how much it's gonna cost.

I'd do it for 400 plus parts but im on Long Island. Hows the trans pan is that leaking also? Your gonna hve to support the engine and drop the whole subframe and r/r the oil pan.

with all due respect, To get it to LI plus parts and labor, it might cost him as much as an indy shop to fix (given the trans pan isnt effed) Unless he has a dolly/transport of course

as far as i can tell everything is fine except the oil pan, but is it possible i like F-ed the engine up real bad from having no oil in it and restarting it after it stalled?

^^ yeah on the 1.8 you need to drop the subframe to remove the oil pan

well, you would know.

If the even was clacking , etc. Then id be pretty scared but if you didnt have it on too long or just long enough to get it out of the way , or home (if it was close) then there is only one way to find out and thats to fix it.

Were the valves louder than usual? If not then you should be ok, the lack of oil pressure probably caused it to stall

The problem w/ the oilpan and replacing it is that you have to drop the subframe to get to it and that takes time, but find a good shop and it shouldnt be THAT bad.

It depends on if the engine was starved for oil and how long. All those moving parts like lubrication. The engine could be fine or you could have damage to the cylinder walls, main or rod bearings, or any of the head components.

The problem is that the car stalled without you knowing it ran low on oil. Then was restarted and driven some more. That sounds like it ran completely out of oil.

yea it was pretty much out, when i stopped it the last time there was just a small amount of oil under the car, well the car is at the dealership now and i should find everything out in about 2 days, im praying it's just the oil pan.

He's talking about the bottom end of the engine, rods, mains, oil pump. Once you ran out of oil you may have damaged the rod bearings, main bearing and any other moving part thats oil fed in the engine by running it with no oil.... even if it was just for a sec

depends on what all would be effed up, most of the dealerships would just assume change the motor out... so I would just pray that all thats still good
