Engine Mechanical problem
1972 Chevy El Camino V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic? Miles

A plug wire was left off my engine, it was driven this way for a few miles. Put wire back on continued to drive car for a while. There is now a clunking on the bottom end. Found there to be gas in the oil, could this have messed up a bearing or a piston or?

Do you
have the same problem?

If oil was deluited for some time yes bearing damage can occur. Check fuel pump it maybe pumping oil into block.
