My mom has a 98 sonata and her bf lost the keys to the ignition so he got another ignition with no keys! He rigged it all crazy! To start the car u would have to stick a screwdriver in the ignition turn it then flip a light switch on and the car would start. Well he got pissed off and disconnected everything so my mom couldn't leave anyway long story short he went to jail and we r stuck trying to move a car without the ignition and they all already red tagged it saying it's gonna get towed in 24 hrs.
I was told by the repair facility that my oil pan is leaking at the seal. I'm pretty sure I can do this myself. I've read some things about having to jack the engine up to remove the pan. I cant imagine this is needed for a simple job. Can anyone give me some info on how difficult this job will be? I haven't been under the car yet to check out the situation because I just got the news last night. I also can't find info online for my model. Thanks for any help you can give. Mike

Recently, my fiance and I were on our way home from dinner when our car suddenly began making a sound which can only be described as some sort of soft material spinning and slapping something as it spun. Wherever the sound is originating from must be directly related to the throttle because the "spin" velocity and sound increases when the gas pedal is pressed. In addition to the sound, the car lost all power and shut off shortly after the spinning sound started.
