    POP!... smoke......

    So I was on a delivery and leaving a stoplight, I began to acclerate, heard a distinct *POP!* , then it started idling funny, I made my left turn and heard a loud rattling. It was smoking like crazy by this point. I pulled over, shut her down and proceeded to check the engine bay. Oil...
