Question about 2002 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
I was driving and heard a clicking noise, which I thought I would have someone look at the coming weekend (a few days away.) The noise began to get louder and the oil light came on. I stopped driving and checked the oil level and there was NO oil in my car. I walked to Wal Mart and filled the oil up, but I'm worried about my car! The oil is not leaking...so where is it going? What do I need to do?
Thank you for your help!
If there is no oil puddles beneath the vehicle the only place it can go is into the cylinders and it get's burned. considering that you did not mention a big blue cloud of smoke while the engine is running tells me that it's not getting burned up. your engine holds 4 1/2 quarts so that is alot of oil to loose on a vehicle not that old. my advice would be to take it to a shop and have the engine checked this appears to be a major mechanical problem and should be dealt with fast before the engine seizes up and more damage can occure.
