The engine probably ran a little bit funny, but no damage would have been caused.

Assuming that the oil filler cover is what you mean... probably not much, but maybe a bit messy on the engine.

I would immediatley check the oil level in the car. If it is still within 1 Quart form the top mark) then nothing happened.

I would then buy a can of engine cleaner like Gunk and spray the hot engine where the oil has srpayed. Then after about 10 minutes I would wash the stuff ogg with a hose (with the engine off), then restart the car and run the car for another 10 minutes or so to DRY OFF the engine completely.

Pre Existing DamageNo. Your Homeowners Policy would not cover pre-existing damage.

No, they will not cover it. However, if a gust of wind knocks it down, then they will cover the fence. Insurance does not cover damage caused by insects.
