Ran out of engine oil and after i refilled, it wont start

I the engine ran completely out of oil, the engine has been cooked and is probably locked up from the friction between unlubricated metal moving parts. Also may have spun bearings which means the main or rod bearings stacked on top of each other causing the engine to lockup. If you ran the engine without oil until it quit you will probably need a new engine.

Oil pressure light is on while I'm driving

No, it is not safe to even have the engine running with the light on-your oil pressure must be low or lost-serious engine damage will result.
Check oil level, and if low add to the full mark. If light goes out, you may be alright. If light is still on with car running, get to a shop immediately for diagnosis.

Buick rendezvouson 03 oil pressure light goes on and off so i ran my car till funny noise then engine stop i try to restart notting just a tick sound the Repair Services guy told me that engine .Someone...

usually the oil pressure light means your oil pressure is low. zthat casn be mechanical breakdoown of the oiling system, low oil level, or a worn engine. Low oil pressure caused failures are usually either fatal to the engine or drastically reduce its life span. Whether it is a faulty sensor or an oil delivery problem you should noot drive with the oil light on or the gauge reading no pressure An engine without oil will overheat metal parts beecaause the oil pressure prevents wear on parts by essentially floating them on an oil film at pressure. This is more important than any other fluid and losing oil is your engine bleeding to death. so why did you keep going Most likely you had both an oiling problem and a sensor that was intermittent. zthey are normally on and engine oil pressure deactivates them.

Have a 03 matrix with a oilpump promblem I think,bought the car last week ran good next day was drive on highway notice oil lap on and noise from motor ,slowed down light went off.Next day change oil and...

Generally three things can turn the light on. First is the sending unit itself if it's going bad. Next is an obstruction of the pump pickup screen (usually hard carbon deposits). Third is worn engine bearings (usually rod bearings). Best way to find the problem is to have someone put a mechanical pressure gauge on the engine and read the actual pressure. If it's low you need to go into the engine to determine why. if it's normal, replace the sending unit. Senders aren't terribly expensive and you could just buy one and replace the one you have, providing the engine isn't tapping or knocking.

Best would be to check the oil pump filter in the sump of the engine. these also clog up and drops the oil pressure resulting in a warning light

I don't think the rough running had much to do with oil level, since it started running rough a 2nd time. Check the fuel filter and ignition timing.

Check oil light stays lit and engine knocks untill you get up to 45 mph...then light goes off and car sounds fine...i may have ran it dry a half a mile...replaced oil filter and oil pan

Check your oil level, if your oil level is good. Then you may have a bad oil pump and your going to have to tear the engine apart to replace it, but if you think you have done damage to the engine from running it dry of oil. Replace the engine, the cost will be cheaper to replace the engine with a used one from a salvage yard then to replace the bad oil pump in you engine since your bearings may be damaged.
Good luck and thank you for using Fixya, in the mean time you might get away with adding Lucas engine oil treatment.
