Never mind cars behind you, they can clean that, did you shut it down before it was too late? Get more oil in there and see where it's coming from, but don't run it so long you let oil get too low again, if it will run. If the leak is obvious, no need to run until fixed.

I have a bearing noise on start up, goes away within 20 seconds when idling down.

You may have an internal bearing issue, which will be less apparent once the oil pressure builds, after the first few seconds of running. Typically this is a camshaft bearing issue, but I'm sorry, I can't be certain without inspecting the vehicle.

Chevy malibu 1998 make like a grinding noise when i turn right, i brake apart the hub bearing, rotor and cv axle, when i move the axles i feel that the one on the driver side its a little bit hard to move...

the left. when you turn left it pushes pressure on the bearing quieting it down turn right and it pulls the bearing you can verify this by jacking up the vehicle and tilting the wheel top to bottom you should be able to feel the play in the bearing if its making noise

you have lost a rear shoe or the Wheel cylinder in the rear has blown out due to worn shoes. Look for a leak at each wheel on the backing plate. if you see a oily substance at one of the wheels you have found your leak, it will need shoes or pads and a caliper and or wheel cylinder. Replace both sides at the same time. Or you will have the other side leak. If you can't find a leak then the master cylinder is bad. Take it to a mechanic if you can't find the leak.

Oil leak passenger side 300 turbo sedan, some on front passenger side wheel. Never lost oil pressure, but dipstick showed very little oil in crankcase on immediate after-run check. Have not started...

Add about 2.5-quarts of new engine oil to the engine.
Remove the passenger-side wheel, and support the car on jack-stands.
Start the engine and look for oil leak.
Chances are leaks are coming from failed oil-pan gasket or the drain-plug.
The head-cover gasket could be failing as well..

Lost all oil pressure no oil getting to top of engine

mileage?..over heated? oil to top is function of oil pump and oil passageways ..bad worn lower engine (crankshaft/bearings)......oil pump push rod..under distributor driven gear down into block to oil pump in oil pan..clogged passages/oil filter/oil filter bypass...... do a oil pressure test while cranking from port on side of block low and determine if bottom end has the pressure first

Oil pressure sensing switch location

The oil switch is located on the passenger side of the truck in the back of the engine. Look for the transmission dipstick, then feel for it between the transmission dipstick and the engine block. It is hidden pretty well, but a socket wrench will fit to take it off. The new part uses a 1-1/16 socket, the old part for some reason was smaller, I think 13/16 inch. Hope that helps.
