Question From Kickersub on Chevy K-10 Oil Pan Explosion

Info :
1986 Chevy
K10
350 V8
260k Miles


I was underneath my 86 Chevy K-10 and was pulling the starter out to see why it was not starting, then i came across this, I never bothered to check in the past I just figured that all old chevy's leaked some oil here and there. but can someone tell me by these 2 picture what exactly happened? or a guess would be nice, it seems to have erupted from the inside because the metal is bent outward and not inwards like if something where to have punctured it....

I guess you had the radio too loud. Your engine threw a rod and it's junk now.

Response From Kickersub

I guess you had the radio too loud.

Haha, thanks for the comical relief.

Any experience/advice on the best way to get the most money out of this thing for scrapping it then? Metal scrap yard? Salvage yard? Craigslist? Otherwise its just going to sit off to the side of my driveway for a long time. All i know is im taking the tires and rims off that thing, they where 800$ Mudders and only have about 3k worth of miles on them.

Response From Sidom

Depending on what the rest of the running gear & body looks like......Try to part out what you can & then sell what's left for scrap...

Response From Kickersub

Thanks everyone for the help and advice!

Response From Hammer Time

Call around and get prices. Craigslist is full of scrap guys trying to buy. If it's got a title, you should be able to get $300 to $400 for scrap.

Response From nickwarner

boat anchor

Response From Discretesignals

Maybe the reason your replacing the starter is because of what flew out of the oil pan. Looks like it is time for another engine or to junk the truck.

Any help would be nice thanks!

Response From Hammer Time

Yep, you be buying an engine.

Response From Discretesignals

Sounds like a diesel. Lifters must be collapsed due to lack of oil pressure.

I wonder what the old oil pan looks like? The oil pans on those are aluminum, so it must of popped a hole or cracked it. Doesn't take long at all to grenade an engine with no oil pressure or oil in it.

Response From 420 jetta

I could fit my fist in the old oil pan, Any way for the update I found another engine for it for 750 118k on it, think its worth getting? Car is in excellent shape inside and out good strong tranny, sad that the engine went the way it did but that's life lol

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Hmmm? I'm a fan of original good used exact engines - whole. It may be rare but my source(s) both - just two, fully check out the engines they keep from salvage yards. Done with biz long time now but would spend a couple hours if needed to check out the engine pre-purchase. These places have a sheet printed on the engines, compression results, miles etc.

If I could or sometimes wait - go out and look at the vehicle it came out of for any info I could dig up and what happened to salvage the car.

The places usually had them indoors on crates strapped down for delivery and came with total warranty but not any labor if it didn't work out.

So far NONE had ever failed! Still local and never used them is a place that does nothing but rebuild engines. Horrible #s of failures so forget that for that place.

Just pulling a valve cover to check sludge situation is telling of how well maintained it was. There's risk in any of this but can get the odds on your side.

I'd avoid private sales. May just be my take on the situation. It's not just labor of a swap but should factor a tune-up, oil change and what to do with your old engine if you take this on yourself or find the right shop to do it. Your call,

after it bottomed out the engine got real loud and wasn't accelerating how it should be,

That sounds like death to me.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Yup. Just the time of the video with oil light on, sounding like that damaged it even more. It may have somehow lost the oil pick up in changing the pan but doesn't matter as said earlier why there's way too low or no oil pressure it will kill it - fast.

At best I think if oil pressure could be restored now it would only be an oil burning clunk of an engine and not last,

T

Response From Tom Greenleaf

An engine with no oil pressure as it seems it ran out of oil and was driven long enough which isn't very long to do severe damage. Oil light is not there for amusement but I think the damage is done and may need a new engine already and yes just that fast. The lack of power is it's tearing itself up from lack of lubrication by all odds. Doesn't matter if low oil pressure is from lack of oil or pump failure it still isn't getting absolutely necessary lubrication and extent of damage could easily exceed cost of a replacement or "game over" for that car possible unless you want to spend more than it's probably worth,
