    Sorry to hear your bad news and I'm afraid I won't be able to help you.

    However, you will need to tell the other guys what sort of a car you have :- what year, 3 door or 5 door, and what engine, petrol, diesel, size etc. etc. in order for them to be able to help.

    Good luck !

    Untill you get the engine apart there is no real way of knowing what has been damaged.
