You can fit new crankshaft bearings etc but it may be wiser to buy a reconditioned engine as more of the parts that wear out will have been replaced on the rebuild

It ran out of oil and now it makes loud noises and only runs for 2 minutes. What engine parts might be damaged?


Any moving part relying on lubrication can be affected by lack of oil.

Sounds like the engine is FUBAR!

Engine oil psi low and light is on


Check oil if ok then observe, engine noisy? Clanking? If so you need to pull oil pressure switch and take manual reading with oil pressure gauge. If engine is running fine with no irregular noises Probly changing oil pressure switch wouldn't be a bad idea.

Accelleration noises of the magnitude you descibe makes me think the engines crank shaft bearings have gone. Has the oil pressure light come on recently and what's the oil level like.
Without being there to hear it, it's very difficult to diagnose. You should detect noises and rattle if you rev it when in neutral if it is the engine. If the engine is smooth in neutral and the oil is good you may have a bad diff or cv joint

Oil light goes on and off


That's really bad ... First of all check oil level when its cold... The clanking sounds are your valves running dry. This will cause massive damage the heads. If you oil is low fill it back up & check the engine for leaks & hope there is not valve damage. If the oil was low and you filled it & you still get the clanking noise the valves are permanently damaged & the head/heads & valves will need to be replaced.. Big costs

Oil light flashes on and off


Your description sounds serious. The next step is to check the oil level, then check the oil pressure with an external gauge. If the pressure is low, the news is not good and you need to disassemble the engine until you find the issue. The clanking does description does not sound good.

Your oil is thinning out too much. Lucas oil additive would be a great thing for this or an oil change with a little heavier weight oil The other cause of this could be piston slap from low grade fuels.

Engine won't turn over.


I'm afraid what you're describing sounds like your bearings went out. Your engine is probably seized up or blown. There is no cheap or easy fix for this problem, your engine will have to be rebuilt or replaced.

The engine is making a really loud knocking noise and the oil light is on. it also smells like something is burning or running hot


Doesn't sound good. Check oil level. Also check for metal in the oil once you pull the dipstick. A loud knocking noise is a sign of a blown engine may be you spun a rod in which case you would need engine replacement or rebuild

Hi metel,

open your bonnet, look under the main engine block (the side which is facing you)

see where the exhaust connects to the engine, in between the exhust pipe and the engine there is the

exhaust manifold.

This might of come loose.
