I hope you added oil before you drove any further. Monitor the level by checking it every few hours, and check for leaks. If the level stays constant you may have had a one-time fluke. If it continues to drop, try to isolate a leak location, and take the car to your mechanic before your engine suffers major damage.

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.

How much oil do I put in my car 19 00 cc

1. Turn off engine ,
2. Take of oil cap on engine
3. Put in a little oil in oil filler hole of engine.
4. then pull out the oil dip stick from engine
5. and clean the dip stick on a rag.
6. Put dip stick back in engine
7. pull out again and check the level showing on the dip Stick
8. If level is too low on dip stick and is not at full level go back to step 1

These steps ensures you avoid over filling the engine with oil

Tip for beginners
The 4 litre oil bottle is way too much oil for an engine to handle.
If you have a full 4 litre oil plastic bottle square shape . hold the bottle on its side to pour the oil out slowly and smoothly.

I own a peugeot 207 and my info came on saying oil pressure is to low and the oil can and stop came on on the dashboard.Is it safe to drive to my garage about 5 miles away and what might be the problem....

Have you checked the oil since the light came on?

Make sure the engine is off and pop the hood. look on the right or left hand side for the dip stick. Pull it out and wipe it off and then reinsert it and pull it back out. Look to see where the oil level is on the dip stick. Fill accordinly. One notch on the stick is one quart of oil. If you refill the oil and start it up and the lights do not go off then it will be safe to drive it to the shop. Oil is in it. However, If there is loud tap tap tapping noise coming from the motor after the oil if full do not drive it. You have probably lost the oil pump and the engine is not getting oil. if you hear no noises and the oil light is still on you can drive it safely to the shop. Let me know how it turns out, Raz

My wife recently had the oil changed in her 2000 nissan altima and the next day it started making really loud knocking noise. my neighbor said he this car a had a "oil baffel" where the oil fill is located...

Most likely not. It can happen if they jammed a rod down there and poked around and did it on purpose.

Most likely you need to check the oil and take it right back to them if it is full or very near full. These places are known for messing up peoples cars after oil changes. I would go by the amount of oil in the car and mileage since the change.
If you only went a few miles say 50 - you should be able to show evidence it was something done or not done by the oil change people. If it is a comparative lot of miles and there are NO LEAKS of any amount much at all you should be able to get something from them if IF -- the oil level is very low or not showing at all.
If you wait 4 hours after driving the car - then
1- go pull the dip stick from the motor and 2
2 without turning the dip stick sideways or upside down
3- check the level and take a video pic if it is lower than 1 quart -
4 - take this to the people who did the oil change and if the level is low - do NOT drive the car without checking to see if the oil change people are stand up people.

Best of it

first make sure oil level is up, then check or just replace oil preasure switch, if light still comes on, have your oil preasure tested, could be low oil preasure or electrical problem start there. good luck.

Oil Light comes on VW passat

Start checking the oil level, if oil is low then the problem is a leak or weared rings.

If oil level is ok, check that the oil pump has enough pressure.

If oil pump is also fine, then scan the ECU (car computer) and replace the sensor if you do not find anything else being wrong.

Hard lifter noise after pulling trailer with Isuzu trooper 3.5L

Sounds like you didn't run the engine in. Check the oil for mangled main bearings.
