So i hit a median coming into a parking lot and my car started to knock a little later the knock left once i got the car into my garage i had two mechanics come look at it when i started it it grinded and then died it also wasnt getting any oil pressure one of them noted they said that they thought that the oil pan was pressed up against the flywheel and thats why it was doing that and that i would have to pull the engine so i can get the oil pan off in order to find out if thats what it was does anyone else have any other suggestions. pulling the engine is the only way to get the oil pan off because 4 of the bolts are right above the subframe and there is no way to get to themthere is like a inch clearance if that i would just pay someone to pull this and do it for me but i mean im 19 i dont have the money for something like that so its going to have to be something i do on my own or with some help from family members.

thanks any help is appreciated

no oil pressure allota times = no oil so you might of smashed the pan and posibly put a hole in it still have to pull motor or take a bunch of stuff of the bottom in order to get to it

The oil pickup screen on the SR20 is normally very close to the bottom of the oil pan. A dent on the bottom of the pan will stop the oil flow. Remove the pan and flatten out any dents. Also check the pickup tube for any cracks.
