    thank you. The oil came out within one hour...after that, it would barely start and then stopped.

    there is clanking when it does start. now with oil ...drive to new parking spot and it stalls....

    I was tol dto replace or rebuild engine, but someone else told me to take a belt? off and check to see if the clanking stops...if it does, what does this mean? I know it would then not be the engine.

If you have a hole in your oil pan, you need a new engine.

I'm betting you had a clank first, the hole was made by a broken connecting rod. You need an engine, or another car, that may cost less....

Hey joza700,

if the car started making a knocking or ticking sound before you realized that their was a hole in your oil pan then, most likely you need a new engine or at lease a a tear down to fix the components that were damaged.

If the engine wasnt making any noise and you shut it off in time when you notice that the car didnt have oil in it, then you should be alright.

At the bare minimum your looking at a new oil pan, on the expensive end your looking at a new motor!! It all depends on how long the car ran without oil.

    If it makes that clanking noise, while in park, then you put it in drive and it dies. Their is really nothing else you need to do, the engine needs to be replaced

The oil pressure dropped in my car because of hole in the oil pan the motor then shut off and will not turn over.is there a sensor that shuts it off or is it possible it locked up


Some vehicles do have an oil lvl sensor that will shut the engine off if the lvl falls to unsafe. The sensor should be located on the oil pan itself. If the hole has been fixed and the pan is full of oil, this should not be an issue. If the hole has not been fixed, the engine has no business running anyway. you can tell of the engine is locked up by putting a socket and ratchet on the main crank pulley bolt and seeing if the engine will turn.

Why would I have a hole in my oil pan and water/oil mixed coming out on a 98chevy suburban vortex 5.7


Your hole in the oil pan is from some damage caused when the vehicle hit something over rough terrain, I am assuming since it is a 4x4. The mixture of water and oil is because you have some leak whether it is a blown gasket or maybe some hole internally in the engine. Do you notice a brownish foam at the end of the oil dipstick if you check the oil, that is usually a sign that water is seeping into the oil parts of the engine.

Oil poured from botton as well as housing unit.


housing unit? are you refering to the engine block? If oil comes out as fast as you pour it in, check your drain plug in the oilpan, holes in your oil pan. Did you run over something recently?

Usually engines hold their oil unless you've run over a big rock and knocked a hole in the oil pan.

drain plug has fallen out more than likely.

Check your oil level? If not do that 1st and get back to whoever did the maintenance NOW before the engine blows. Because it sure sounds like they did something wrong.

2005 Chevy Cavalier, oil pan has hole from rock. Removed all bolts but still cant get pan off. Does engine need to be supported by something during process and what can the pan be caught on


most of front end and engine cross over support--if hole is small enough clean and make a plug with pop rivet and cold weld epoxy(oil & gas proof) or if bigger use rubber oil plug replacement a plug about 1/2 inch wide used as replacement when oil drain plug damaged or cross threaded most auto stores sell them

You most likely hit a curb, the pan is cast aluminum and will break like glass if you hit a curb, the pan can be changed without removing the engine, it is very time consuming, but it can be done.
