Story is in a nut shell possible hydro-lock. Motor is toast pieces of it on the road and oil all under her car on the exhaust which caught fire. Once the dealership gets it torn down ima get pictures of the block cause im almost positive theres a big hole. :( :Mad: :banghead: :banghead:

I don't think hydrolock would cause a hole to blow in the block or a fireball to shoot out the exhaust. It usually makes the motor bog & go sluggish.

Damn, though. That looks rough.

I'm guessing something with oil pressure, hence the fireball? I'm no mechanic.

Either way, sorry to see that.

it happened last night. it wasnt raining then. I think it happen on the way home fromt he SI meet on sunday. I got caught in some traffic on 64W and I guess the puddle I went threw was deeper than I thought and the car shut off and wouldnt start for awhile.
