DROVE 2 BLOCKS AND CAR STALLED

2006 GMC Other • 98,000 miles

I have a 2006 Cobalt and I hit something on the freeway. Got off freeway right then. Drove 2 blocks and car stalled. Got out and looked as soon as the oil light came on. There was a huge hole in my oil pan. And the gear shift locked up after. I changed oil pan, checked starter, battery is fine. It will not start and gear shift dont move. Could it be a relay switch or something to do with the anti theft? I can fix the problem myself if I knew what it was. I cannot afford to take it somewhere, or get rid of it. The car is in excellent condition other than this problem. Very clean inside and out.

If the car stalled and now the starter wont even spin the engine over then most likely you have a locked up engine.

The starter spins. It seems like it's not in park

Can you hear the the starter kicking out and trying to turn the engine around?Have you tried turning the engine over by hand with a breaker bar?
