Ah, OK. That makes sense. I busted a hole in my Cobalts oil pan once before, as well, turning onto my wife's grandparents dirt road. Had it towed 70+ miles home (wasn't cheap!) and threw a new pan on it. Got lucky, and I didn't let it run dry enough to damage anything.

the kid told me that when he did it, he immediately pulled over and had it towed. But i couldn't believe that. It was only $300 (after talking him down from $1250) so i didnt expect much. Was planning on fixing the pan and bearings then most likely would of traded it on something better or flipped it for $600-800.

70+ miles, man i bet that was an arm and leg. 5 miles is about $100. Cant imagine 70+. I got triple A now though, 100 miles free. Makes it worth the $20/month i think.

I drove it for probably a quarter mile after the hole got punched in it, with the low oil dinging at me the whole time. Low speed/RPM, so maybe that helped out. I was really afraid when I fired it up after putting the new pan on, but it was fine.

Hole was about 1" by 1.5"

I still have the pan and bearing set for the 07. The hole in the 07 was about 2" the kid put jb weld over it. Im most likely gonna put them up on ebay unless i find someone near me to pick them up. Use that money to get new headlights for the blazer.
