Thanks for responding rasmataz;I just got back into town. Here is what I know.
My son had the vehicle towed home when the vehicle didn't sound right and he saw what he thought was motor oil leaking from under the vehicle. The next morning I checked the oil; full, black, and didn't smell burnt. Got under the vehicle and determined the fluid must have been from the differential. Upon starting the engine I immediately turned it off. The whole vehicle shook and I thought it may be a piston about to let loose. A friends ex-husband was in town listened to it and said "top not bottom, end; bent valve is my guess". Having just recently purchased this vehicle I'm low on funds, so I can't afford to bring it to a shop. What, should I do next?
