Heard a 'pop' under the engine, and when I tried to check the oil I couldn't get the oil stick to go in.
My car has 100000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.
Hi there, thanks for writing in.
It’s hard to decipher exactly what the issue is with your car using the information given. If your engine truly had a damaged connecting rod in the oil pan, then the engine will likely need to be completely replaced. Though before we jump to conclusions, I would suggest having a qualified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, diagnose the engine noise for you.
