Default Did I blow it up? - 12-02-2019, 05:46 PM

While at a red light, not moving, my n54 with 114k miles threw the engine malfunction light then shortly after it threw an oil pressure light, I waited at the light not knowing how bad it was and drove the car to the nearest stop. There is an insane amount of oil all over the engine bay and most of it spilled onto the window shield and out of the front passenger side light. I turned the car off and back on just fine. No knocking. This thing blew up, smoke was everywhere and inside the car. I checked the car and I could not find a broken hose, I did not see a hole in the block. So I pulled the codes and got one code 2A98- crankshaft inlet correction. Any ideas what could have happened? Is it worth fixing? someone please help

Can't tell from a post, but something physical is broken if oil is spraying everywhere. Might be a simple oil line leak or pump failure? But if you drove with no oil pressure, probably time for a rebuild.

You should tow the car to a shop and have them diagnose what happened. Impossible to tell for sure without more information. Could be anything from a hole in the block to a hole in the valve cover or a failed oil cooler line or something.

Agreed
I also felt oil cooler or lines when reading this thread yesterday. Windshield ? Oil sprayed from front to back because of fan most likely ?

After cleaning all the oil, looking for hours, I decided to put more oil in it and have someone turn it on and off quickly, as a result I found the issue! The bolt holding the oil cooler housing was pushed back and too the thread from the oil filter housing with it. The gasket is tore and oil flew up onto the hood in seconds. Looking forward to changing that and having it back on the road!

I can’t even imagine how this would happen kind of a head scratcher..both seals to the oil filter housing are in a shaped groove and the seal is rubber type compound. But they don’t extend beyond the groove by much. They have had a history of leaking but typically it would be a slow leak down the front side causing a belt to very bad things to a engine. Hopefully we see some pics.

Yes, it would be nice if they could scale on the fly... sigh.
Make sure your alternator and Serpentine belt is clean.
Avoid the belt shredding and getting pulled into the block through the Crank Pulley... simple issue can get complex fast if she's not appropriately clean.

WOW your cars looking like it spit up. Can’t tell where it actually leaked from because of the mess it left. But I would for sure break the front end off an remove any trace of the oil. Replace the belt an pulleys along with the leaky culprit. Kind of looks like the it came from where the oil cooler lines connect to the filter housing. I would be half tempted to replace that whole assembly. As much as you have invested into it already.

As you can see this is why I thought I blew it up and the amount of smoke that went up from the hood and inside the car I truly thought the car was on fire!

Good news is it didn't blow-up... it just spit-up.

Fix it properly, clean it well - not minimally, but proactively.

That headlight picture is epic. Looks like it had a 1950s ballast pop.
