should i keep driving it or wat


By all means, engine rebuilders need to earn a living too! In the meantime, check that your oil filler cap is on properly. Check your oil level. If it's below the mark on the dipstick then add some oil. Otherwise, let a mechanic look at it or you could be looking at some big trouble.


your either low on oil or your oil pump has stoped working due to a clog or worn out parts. If you keep driving it you will ruin your engine get this looked at asap or start looking for anouther car because that would be less of a headache if you blow the engine out of that one.
