Depends on what the noise is and where it is coming from. Why bother putting oil in it now? Damage is already done, oil won't help you if it's the engine. Just take it to your mechanic to see what is causing the noise.

You may not have any oil left in the engine. Sounds like you just learned a very expensive lesson in car maintenance. doh!
