Question about Cars & Trucks
The "oil hi" light is coming on in my 2004 ml350. I have 108000 miles on it. Purchased used about 4 months ago. I had oil changed about 2500 miles ago by Jiffy Lube so if the oil was high, don't you think it would have come on sooner? Also, the day after the oil hi light started coming on, it started making a "whirring" noise that occurs when I am doing about 25 mph or less. It happens in reverse or drive as well as whether or not I am accelerating or decelerating. What could this be?
Check the oil on the dipstick. If it is high, it may be contaminated with gas or coolant. You can smell if it is gas. If it is coolant, it will look milky brown color. That would point to a head gasket problem.
If the oil looks good and not contaminated, but still high, drain enough out the drain plug until oil is at proper level, or just go ahead and drain all the oil so it can be looked at at for contamination. Because if jiffy lube put too much in, you are right, the light should have come on sooner. The whirring noise could very well be from a high oil level, so look into all possibilities. If oil is not too high, it could be just a sensor problem-but it doesn't sound like it. Good luck.

sounds like the clip on the rear output shaft its probably broke. do this by removing the rear driveshaft, and the tail of the transfer case, there are 4 bolts holding it in place. then grab the output shaft and see if it has any front to back movement. if so pull it all the way to the rear and you should see a groove at the front part of the shaft where the clip goes. Then you should find the pieces fo the clip in the tail housing. One person said he found the replacement clip at a local tranny shop. I am calling the dealership parts counter for a new clip for my 97 Tahoe tomorrow. Hope this helps..

SOURCE: Sudden oil leak and engine noise
It looks like you drove your car with no oil in your engine, unfortunately you should have stopped the moment you started to hear the "rapping noise" since you could have severely damaged your engine. If the noise continues even if you have a normal oil reading you most likely would have to overhaul your engine since by driving it oil dry several parts may have resulted damaged.
