    no. You need a new oil pan

    I blew the rod and it knocked a hole in pan. shop said 3500.00..my jaw dropped...lol

    The vehicle is 13 years old. Time for a new one.

    I am not sure if I would put that kind of money into a 13-year-old car. Normally when that happens and the car is that old, that is there way of saying they are done.

    It will not be just the oil pan,the con-rod will need to be replaced and the piston, also the bore will be scored. The car is dead.
