Unfortunately it may have caused much more damaged that you may think..but depending how badly it was low in oil will affect the result..Else you may need to strip down the engine..Hope this helps...

My engine has a noise and oil sign is displayed and it does not go away although there is enough oil what it could be?


Bad oil pump? Bad bearings? Bad sender unit, but with bad noise probably the engine needs overhaul or replacement.

1993 7 suburban doesn't start wants to but it doesn't start all the way and it makes a funny noise


Hard to say anything about the 'funny noise'.

The engine needs fuel, air, and spark to start and run. If any of these are lacking then it won't.

I would first remove a spark plug from each side of the engine to see what MAY be going on. If the spark plugs are wet with fuel, then I would lean towards it being an ignition problem.

If they are dry, then it could possibly be a fuel problem.

You could also remove the distributor cap to see if there is corrosion on the terminals of the cap and rotor.

I had to rescue a GM vehicle a few years ago that quit running going down the road. The engine acted like it wanted to start but just wouldn't. I did the above suggested checks and it turned out to be the distributor cap and rotor were both corroded to the point of not allowing the spark to get to the spark plug wires. New cap and rotor and it started right up and has been running ever since.

Hope this helps.

I was driving my car its been making a funny noise for awhile when I drive it, I was driving and the car died and the check engine light and oil light came on when it died. I tried to start it again it...


A "funny" noise doesn't give much of a hint but the first thing you want to do is open the hood and make sure the belt is on and also tight. If so the problem could be be anything from the crankshaft positioning sensor to the alternator or even water in the gas and you will have to get the fault code to find what the problem is. If it is the belt that's not expensive to replace but you still need someone that knows what they're doing. Get a mechanic to look at it.

98 chevey malibu...drove it 4 blocks hesitated at stop signs then oil light came on parked it... now it trys start but wont stay running..making funny noise on top engine what possibly the promblem..no...


Okay, the oil may have come on due to the engine stalling, when the engine dies out the oil light will come on and also you may get the battery and other lights but as far as the no start that will have to be the first problem to look at then when it runs the noise will be next. the first thing would be the fuel also make sure the oil level is full on some of the newwer cars the engine will not run when oil is to low, im not sure on yours but make sure oil is full first, the fuelpump may have gone bad, the first thing you need to have done is scan the computer for codes, the codes will help if there are codes stored by the computer but a scan tool will be needed to get codes, if you dont have one then the only thing you can do is a spark test, which you would remove a plug or coil wire and spin engine over to see if theres spark and the other test would be to spary starting fluid into throtlebody and then trying to start engine and if its a fuel problem the engine will start and then stalll once the starting fluid has burned away, and this will mostlikely be due to a bad fuelpump. if this is a sensor problem then without a diagnosic scan tool it will be hard to find that problem.

Engine oil pressure light came on. I checked oil levels and added 1/2 ltr. Light went out and didn't come back on. tune up to be done on Tuesday next week. I suspect it might be the oil filter. Should...


If your oil level is full, light is off and no abnormal engine noises, if should be ok to drive to the shop. If light does come on, stop the engine. I would also have the shop check your oil pressure with a manual gauge, to determine the exact oil pressure reading. This could save you from major engine failure due to low oil pressure. I hope this helps.

The truck has made a funny noise for a while when and everytime you start it then this morning it would turn over but would not start any clue what is wrong with it


The check engine light should be on. Rent a scanner, read out any codes, and pursue to repair(s). Funny noises at start could be problems with the starter motor, but you say that the engine turns over, which seems to rule that out. Hope the scanner brings you success!

I have a 97 Chevy Lumina. I drove away from work last night and got about a block or so and the engine died. The oil light came on so I figured it needed oil. I put 3 quarts in it and it started right up...


Did your car have a funny knocking noise before you added the oil either the 1st or 2nd time and to add 6 pints of oil then you must be either burning it (a lot of blue smoke ) out the exhaust pipe or a very bad leak somewere, but if you need more oil again then if its about 6 pints again then the answer to your question would be Get and Fit a second hand engine as yours wont be any good by now as the bearings and chrankshaft would be well worn and buggered .
Does the engine turn over by hand easy And have you lost power in the last few days or any strange noises from the engine compartment.
It doesent sound good i must admit but Let me know how you get on .. Ron
