I agree about the blown head gasket. Could also be a bad intake gasket. About the hole in the oil pan. Do you know how it got there (did you run over something)? If not, you may have thrown a (connecting) rod. If that's the case, the motor's done. Personally I don't think a blown head gasket is worth fixing ($1500.00 +) on a 16 year old car. But that's just me. HTH. -Jim
