    nothing like catastrophic eng failure (pics)

    Car ran great all yesterday even though it was raining. Then had to jump start the wifes car later that night in the rain.... still running fine. Drove it around the block and shut it off with no problems. Then when I went to start it in the morning it sounded like shit was falling right out the bottom of the motor . So far I know I have PTV contact....the loud poping noises coming from the motor after trying to start kinda gave that away. Also jacked up the car and found oil leaking from the block. There is no way I could have hydrolocked the motor... so who the hell knows. The sad part is I bought this car at 39k and I only have around 44k on the car now. Heres the pics.
