Take the belt off the water pump and spin it. How does it FEEL?

Don't drop the pan yourself. Have the mechanic do it, and have him remove 2 or 3 rod caps and inspect the bearings. I bet you spun a few.

Steve...remember last night. At this point..it'* time for the mechanic. You'll bloody less knuckles and enjoy getting the car back in about 1/4 of the time it would take to fix it yourself.
