So today I found out my cars engine blew, the oil cap popped off I don't know when but when I got home it was off and oil was everywhere, I took my brothers car to get oil and fill it in but it was to late, I don't have money to repair it so what do I do now with it?

That sucks! I lost my oil cap one time and drove around for a week without it. Probably not the best idea but my car was fine.

not much you can do. You can maybe part it out or just call your local wreckers and they will pick it up and give you some cash like maybe $100.
Or buy a new (used) engine and have it put it in. Shouldnt be that much if its the exact same engine and depending on the car you might be able to get a cheap price on a new one.

The car ride was only 1hr 45min but I it didn't pop off at the beginning of the ride because I would have noticed it, I only noticed when I was close to my house

I was looking at the parts used engine was cheapest $890 but I don't have money for that plus to pay to have them swapped

I think my best bet would be to junk it
