So a about a week ago i hit a rock in the road. Didn't feel like anything was wrong so I kept driving..then the car just shut off on me. I got out looked under the car and there was a whole in my oil pan..then I checked the dip stick and there was not a drop of oil..the car wouldn't turn over after that..is my engine blown?
