Asked by Jul 31, 2016 at 03:21 PM about the 2002 Toyota Camry LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi  i have a Toyota Camry 02 2.4 manual car
, and one day it was pouring rain and I
burned rubber, then my oil light came on. I
pulled to the side and checked my oil and it
was full, so I continued driving the car for a
few days with the oil light still flashing on a
off. As the days went by I could feel my car
lacking of power. Well I drove it like that in
till it started dieing out and losing power and
next thing u know it started making a
knocking sound and the compression wasn't
there what's wrong or what are the things i
need to check on my car?

You should have stopped driving it when the light started flashing and had to towed to your preferred shop. as it sounds right now the engine is most likely shot due to loss of oil pressure.
