You to climb underneath and find exactly where the leak is coming from. More than likely you have a cracked oil pan that needs to be replaced

It's very likely that whatever he ran over put a hole in your oil pan.
Do NOT drive the car any further as you may loose all of the oil and cause the engine to seize.

Call your auto insurance as this can be considered an accident and repairs may very well be covered by your insurance.

Whatever you do, have the car towed to the repair shop of your choice.

    I can't imagine it costing that much, so you're probably right...in won't be enought to exceed the deductible. Call the repair shop and ask to be sure.

sounds likely that the sump has been punctured or a seal to the drive shafts or crank pulley damaged , only way to tell for sure is to get on a vehicle lift so can see under neath , will need to go to a mechanic shop for this

Engine was idling then just stopped appears to have siezed what would cause this


Lack of antifreeze and water (coolant) flowing into the engine. Water pump failure or not enough coolant in the system. Lack of motor oil flowing in the engine. Very low amount of motor oil in your car or oil pump failure.

I got a 1995 camaro and just got the oil change and smoke is coming from under the hood.


Sounds to me like oil got spilled onto the engine and exhaust manifold. I had to get an oil filler extension to keep that from happening when I changed the oil in my '96. Otherwise; No matter how careful I was, some oil always got spilled and then it would be a few days of driving and some smoking before it all dried up.

Have you looked things over carefully under the bonnet?

Have you looked things over carefully under the bonnet for evidence of a BP event.. Oops! I mean evidence of an oil spell?

OIL IN SPARKPLUG TUBE


Sounds like one of two things. One is it has had oil spilled while adding oil and it has ran down into the chamber by gravity. The other is a leaking valve cover gasket.
