Question about 1990 Pontiac Firebird
I went on a dirt road with my 1990 Pontiac Firebird. The road was fairly maintained, but bit rocky in some parts and some parts were like driving over a washboard. When I pulled onto the main highway (asphault road) to head home, I brought the car up to about 45-50 mph and drove for less than a minute and it suddenly made a repetative clanking sort of sound. I immedietaly pulled over and turned the car off. I opened the hood and it was smoking a little bit. I let it cool down for about 10 minutes and tried to turn it on again, but it wouldn't. It just did the repetative clanking noise again. Checked the oil and I was totally out.
As I waited to be picked up, it was dark, so I kept the lights on for about 5 hours and the battery died on me. The next day, I went back out to the car, put oil in it and charged the battery with jump starters and the car started up (barely) and it had a very loud knocking sound, then died shortly after. I had it towed to my house. I have a new battery, new oil and when I try to turn it on, it has a jagged clanking sound, like two gears are grinding together. Is my baby's engine siezed?
My gsi astra had no oil in it when i drove it blue smoke came out exhaust can it be fixed
