This depends on why the oil pressure is low. If the reason is worn crank bearings you need a new engine. How many miles on the engine?


If you're NOT low on oil, and the low oil pressure light goes up when you bring the engine up from idle, AND th erattling goes away then, your oil may be too thin. Did you by any chance get the oil changed just before the oil pressure liught started coming on and the rattling started?
