Looking at the stress marks of the metal on the pan, it will be easy to tell
if the trauma came internally from a rod or externally from road debris.
If the pan was pushed up into the motor, its external. If its pushed down
toward the road, its internal.
Your sig says you destroyed one motor already. Could this be some sort
of trend of your driving habits?
