Sounds internail, Hopefully it's just maybe a rod bolt come lose. But could also be the camshaft, Check and see if your still getting fire to plugs, If camshaft is busted it will not fire. Befor you have any work done be sure to get a sec, opinion and price quote. Best of luck to you.

What could have happened to the oil in my car?

Oooooooo... I think that engine is GONE, Miguel... not even rebuildable, I think it's ruined.

The drain plug or oil filter may have been loose, allowing the oil to drip out, but since you didn't find any oil on the ground, that's doubtful. What's MORE likely is that you threw a rod (the rattling noise), and that rod broke a hole in the side of the crankcase and blew all your oil out the hole. If I'm right, that engine can't be salvaged... none of its internal parts are good for anything but scrap metal now.

My son thinks his a mechanic experimenting ,place a fan as big as palm size in the air induction hose ,he start the escalade and test drive ,he heard a grinding and then knocking sound in the engine, then...

could be the oil pump has failed grinding sound then knocking sound could also be the timing is out or failing that something forren has got into the engine. check all these out and don't run the engine you are making the engine worse. if pump for the oil has gone and the engine has been run can mean a new engine. if timing belt has moved could be a new head will be needed. and pistons. failed oil pump does more damage in the long run as the hole engine needs oil.

2002 pontiac gran am son was driving it ran hot I put in coolent and check oil no oil put in oil tried to start it car will turn over but will not start getting gas heard the fuel pump

check oil to see if there is rad fluid in it. if there is you have a cracked head or head gasket. if no rad fluid in oil, check for a spark.pull out a spark plug attach spark plug wire hold close to engine block with gloves and turn over engine. it is best to have someone with mechanical know how to do this,i.e. friend or nieghbor

Engine Knocking / No Power

Dosent sound good. Oil light on means you lost oil pressure. and the knocking sound is the damage done due to low pressure. Start looking for another engine or another van.

My son tried to start car this morning and it would not start. He heard a noise. When it was checked, they found pieces of the block under the car and there is now a hole in the back of the block. What...

Sounds like it was frozen, how cold was it ? most likely the coolant wasn't mixed for that climate, when you say a hole, any chance it could be a freeze plug (it will be round and copper)

I have a 1991 nissan pickup. The engine started getting hot, as i was driving it lost power and eventually shut off. I didnt see any water leaking so I checked the oil and antifreeze was in the oil. Now it...

I would really be concerned about the antifreeze in oil, sounds like head gasket at least or head, block problem, even if you dont see antifreeze leaking, the engine can burn it and exit through tail pipe-white smoke or steam (beyond just cold start-up)

Check engine warning light came on and the vehicle lost power and then picked up again - checked the engine oil, water, no obvious things out of place - sounds like motor is starving for fuel or something...

Your computer went into limp mode due to an intermittent sensor data loss. Recommend you get a free scan at your local parts chain and ask them to check the trouble code history. Write down the trouble codes and post them here for us to review and provide recommendations.
