asked by on

I was driving on highway and car started ticking. Slowed down. Started smoking and stopped. Check engine light came on. And at oil temp light. I poured 2 quarts of oil in and tried starting it and it shook really bad as if gears were grinding. There was puddle of oil under car. Do I need a new engine?
My car has an automatic transmission.
