Pan off? Get under the car,take a dead blow or a rubber hammer and knock the big ends of the rods fore and aft..the rod bearings should have a 'click' of side to side play..on the ones you cant hit use a pry bar to check...if all the rods "click" check the crankshaft end play by using the pry bar and prying the crankshaft fore and aft.if the crank doesnt move you have a tight main,check center first then rear......if all the rods click and the crank moves fore and aft,you have a stuck piston,wadded up oil pump or distributor or bad cam gear..but that's rare..
