oil problems!

last night i was driving on the freeway when i heard kinda like a crack, the car felt fine but the engine was making a weird noise. i pulled over to smoke coming out of the front and out from the back. after the smoke went away i noticed that there was engine oil everywhere. what could have happened?

I'm not clear on what car you're driving. Your profile says it's a '93?

Give give us more information on what it is, mileage, etc.

Not sure about a cracking sound, but check your valve cover gasket.

I'm sorry to have to do this, but you seem pretty clueless about cars so just take it to a professional mechanic. I'm not sure why you expect the members of the E90-chasis forum to give you advice on and E36-chassis 325especially as we are all just sitting behind our computers and really can't see your car. Then you say (Im using my dork voice) I lifted it yesterday and more oil squirted out when I pushed the gas pedal. WTFO.

Here is a clue, your car is 17 years old. It breaks.

Granted, lack of smarts the man is asking help from a E90 forum when he owns and E36, but if the only advice you have is to find a mechanic, then fat fucking lot of good you are anyway..

you might aswell be on an kitty cat forum for the amout of effort you offered..
