    Well I was able to push start the car and i drove it probably 30 miles on the highway with the radio cranked, you would think the battery would eventually die.... My car has had aftermarket put on it, the previous owner installed a turbo timer and aftermarket headlights and taillights.

This nois is the sound of the starter solenoid that trying to close the contacts so the starter energizes and crank your engine . because it not recieving the sufficient power so its cant close the contacts , thats because dead , loose , damaged baterry cables . in your case check your battery cabkes if not there is a problem with your ignition system

Just bought a used VW Jetta GLS. Noticed oil was a little low. Put oil in and everything was fine. Got a oil change. And drove my car 70 miles home. Woke up this morning to find a puddle the size of a 1/4...

No, this is not good. Check your oil to see how low it is. It may have lost considerably more than that in the 70 mile drive. If you have not noticed any oil leakage prior to getting the oil change, you need to return to the facility that changed your oil and have them check to see where the oil is coming from. Common mistakes at "lube joints" is failure to tighten the oil filter and drain plug, and leaving the old filter gasket on the engine. You say you just bought the car. Did you happen to notice any oil under the car where it was sitting before you bought it? If you bought it from a used car dealer, give him a call and ask if there is a problem he neglected to tell you about. If it is a serious, and potentially costly problem, you may have recourse.

Car getting hot

1) Is there enough coolant in the radiator?
2) Have you noticed if the electric fans are kicking on when the temp is going high? I'm guessing that they are not, the temp switch may be faulty.

Oil light goes on...had a dry stick 4 1/2 qts put in. no oil on ground. after oil change light went on at 70 miles.. on 15 secs then off for 5 miles then on again 15 secs--- off 4 miles--off 3 miles- off 2...

if it's not going onto the ground, and it's not being burned, check the positive crankcase ventilation and the exhaust gas recirculation valves for oil seepage...also check your air filter, if its got oil on it replace the pcv valve.
