how does that happen? What did it sound like when it happened? Did you also have to change your underpants?

It's on the pan and I can see the sprocket and I can wiggle it it moves alot right above the hole is the pump.
So the sprocket cam loose and broke the oil pan? You are lucky it waited till you got home to break loose instead of stranding you out in bf egypt.
