    There was nothing in the comments, but I'm watching. Maybe it's a line leak or intercooler.

    its a rupture
    engine probably is not blown.

    I want to see a blower cough and take the hood right off.

    That's fresh engine oil on the outside of the front fender in that pic. Can't imagine how it got there.... Doesn't make much sense.

    Posted by "LS Power". Engine bay pic doesn't show any oil sprayed in there....
    Looks like a hoax to me.

    The oil starts at the fender crease and is a follows a nice pattern down, if a line ruptured while driving there should be evidence sprayed all over, not following a nice orderly drip pattern.

    I am calling BS on this!

    It's been posted that it's an oil cooler line....makes sense cause the oil cooler is on the passenger side of the car

    Ok I did some digging. Someone in the comments says it was a leaking oil cooler line. And the driver said it read zero oil pressure when he shut it off. So a simple leak may have ruined the motor. Have to wait for more info. This will probably get spread everywhere with false information no matter what really happened. Here's the facebook page.

    Should still have engine oil sprayed all over the passenger side of the engine bay. If it had the pressure to blow through the body panel seams, it should be EVERYWHERE under the hood - and it's not.

    Could be a hole in the oil heat exchanger that sits in the right lower corner of the fascia. Then you wouldn't get oil spray up on the engine

    How many miles on it ? There is oil on the exhaust pipes and also stickers / labels on the pipes as well so you may be smelling this.
