Question about 1993 Buick Regal
They guy who did the oil change forgot to put the plug in and oil leaked everywhere
Do you mean the oil cap? it sounds that is where oil leaked out, clean the spark plug wires on both ends specially at distributor or coils, good luck

SOURCE: rattling from under the hood
I would start by splitting up the drive train to determine if it is accessory, engine or transmission related.
There are a number of things that can cause a problem like this.
1) Is the noise louder in drive or reverse.
2) I would start with heat-shields because of your "clank" description. Exhaust manifold, catalytic converter shields and any other you can find under hood or under body.
3) If all is good, check engine and transmission mounts. Make certain none have collapsed, cracked or broken.
4) If all good, remove all accessory drive belts and start engine to see if noise goes away.
That's a lot to start with, so let me know what you find and we will go from there.

When you remove the timing cover you will see that the seals for the front balancer is no longer in the block, it has popped out and is spinning around with the front balacer shaft.
There is a huge opening where the seal should be and oil comes out rapidly.
The timing belt should be replaced because the oil will cause it to break before it should

SOURCE: Oil leaks
you have to closely inspect the motor and the gaskets, the intake gasket often leeks oil, as does a head gasket, if you cant find anything on the lower end of the motor neaqr the pans, that would be the things i looked into next

may want to get a second opinion from a mechanic you trust. the oil pan being damaged would mean it is cracked because it is made of aluminum on the 3.1 and the3.4 liter engines.drain plug damaged could just be rounded off in which case Wal-mart will not fool with. oil filter leak could be smply residue from a previous oil change. again I suggest a second opinion
