I looked under the car and can see it dripping from all over the place so that was no help. All I can tell is it is on the passenger side.
So, does anyone have any ideas as to what could have exploded on me?
Also when i pulled over it stalled on me.
It is an 86 3.8L

If this turns out to be something I cant afford to fix I will say bye bye mustang maybe sell some of the parts.

Thanks for any help

Sounds like you threw a rod . .. .

Best case - something punched a hole in your oil pan . .. .

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
