95 Ford Taurus SHO
My son was driving and heard a bang, now there is oil/ fluid all over undercarriage
.What could it be?
Loud bangs are usually not good, plus I know how the SHO performs and how hard it is to keep your foot out of it, so based on that I am going to say it threw a rod and most likely broke the block or the oil pan.
Car ran fine afterwards,bang was a little further back than engine
So maybe transmission fluid, possible ring and pinion destruction. Was there any whine in the powertrain before this happened.
Slight whine only heard outside car
Yep still suspect the trans, did you figure out what fluid was all over everything?
Rained all day did not get to look at it
