as the title suggests yes i hit one of those metal floor covers they place when doing construction, question i have is what kind of damage should one expect aside from the obvious cracked oil pan.

How hard did you hit it?

Did you crack the oil pan or just guessing?

Could be damage to the tire sidewalls, check them regularly for signs of a bubble, this includes jacking it up and looking at the inside sidewall. Bent wheels are of course a chance, while it's jacked up check for run out. Might want to pay attention for a vibration at specific speeds to see if wheels are out of balance.

I mean, the list is extensive but really depends on how thick it was and how hard you hit it.

Also, why is this in the Marketplace? LOL

It really depends on where it hit under your car. When i had my mustang there was a car door laying in the middle of the road and i hit it doing 80 and it stuck under my car. I had to have a tow truck lift me up so we could get it out. Aside from a few scratches it didnt do any damage at all.

I was gonna say, are you looking for a spare oil pan? :)

So, you are going to get one of the aluminum replacements right? Might as well. And a Street Shield might be a good add on right now. :D
