Story goes: I was driving on the highway and did a little pull up to 70mph. The car hesitated a little which made me chill out snd drive like a grandma. Around 5 minutes later the car started dying bad and had smoke coming from the rear (unsure of color because friend saw it following behind) and had to pull off the highway and have the car towed home. Couple weeks later i get around to pulling the intake off and see oil dumped into the intake, one of the cylinder 1 intake valves smashed in, along with the cylinder one sparkplug being completely smashed in. Cylinders 1,2,3 sparkplugs had oil on the top (I believe from a faulty valve cover gasket) and none had major damage like cylinder 1. Anyone have any ideas because im at a loss right now. I know im going to have to fully tear down the motor but I would like to have a idea of what happened and what caused this if anyone has had experience with this before.Thank you for reading.
