As you can see in the picture, the oil was clearly leaking from the gasket not being seated properly between the oil pan and block



But in all seriousness, the car had a really bad knock and died on the way to my house when I bought it this spring.
I've been working on almost everything else, and am getting around to the motor.
The rod was sticking out of that hole in the oil pan and caused all sorts of damage.

What's missing in this picture? tons of stuff.

connecting rod, piston, bearing, engine mount, etc.
that rod really wreaked havoc when it decided to evacuate, as well as covering everything in oil.

I'm sure I'll find tiny pieces of everything in the oil pan when I drain it tomorrow, as I don't think the piston is still in the cylinder

you can see 2 gouges in the cylinder wall here, im sure there are more I'll find when I get the engine out

You will most definitely need another engine. You might as well upgrade.

Surely you're not considering rebuilding that engine?

I looked at that first picture and thought "you've got bigger problems than a squeezed gasket" But then looked at the other pics and figured you already know that!

Anything I might say is probably worth what you paid for it, so treat it accordingly!

One of my co-workers many many years ago had a Ford pick-up that was making a strange noise. He asked me to take a listen, then told his wife to rev it up. She put it right to the floor, didn't take long before we knew what the noise was. Shoved a rod out the side of the block. The amazing thing was it still RAN! he had just enough left to get it home before the over heating shut it down.
