Yes, 5 miles without oil destroys an engine. Check into a lower mileage salvage engine the most economical method to repair the '92 Toyota. Do NOT drive / run an engine without oil I don't recommend this..so you will not face the problem again. Really a 92 Camry is not worthy of being repaired.

Since you stopped the engine before any damage was done should be able to fix oil leak and put correct amount of oil in engine and should be good to go. If engine still has tap after fixing leak add some Lucas Engine Oil Stablizer to oil tap should go away at least it did for me when I had a engine tap.

"Tac Tac" noise and no engine oil is not good. It is very possible that your engine is shot. A 1992 Camry with a bad engine needs to be crushed.
