2001 9-5 Aero
Driving home I accelerated from a stop light, and BANG! rattle, cloud of smoke from tailpipe. The engine was shaking like crazy and rattling/knocking but idles and runs. I drove !5 miles to get her home.
I have not teared into it I yet, I dont know if its a broken piston or something in the valve train. Next step is to pull the valve cover and take a peek.
But for now she is sequestered and will shelter in place in my garage.
