My husband just broke down about 6 hours from home. Engine made a pop sound an oil poured out everywhere. Any ideas what this might be before he decides to leave it dead out of state?

Something let go, either a gasket, internal engine failure, oil cap, or maybe just the oil filter got hit? I can go on. But someone will need to get under the van to determine what the issue is. Sorry.
