OK. the 'oil light', unless it specifically says so, does not mean just add a quart when it comes on. USE DIPSTICK. The light usually means oil pressure is low. Now, did you put the oil in the right place? Did you spill some on exhaust manifold or pipe? Please describe the noise.. knocking? squealing? what?

How do I fix the oil pressure
