Angry When it rains it pours......SMH

I think I spun a bearing again.....
Oil pressure light comes on when in traffic and stopped at Red Lights.

I hear slight engine noise/rattling sound that is totally in sync with the light going on and off.

get up to speed and light goes out.

Will check oil level at lunch today, but did oil change less than 2K ago so not expecting it to be low.

Hope i can fix it and not have to park it.

This is CRAZY !
I check dip stick and nothing, nada....
I put 2 quarts in and now it at least makes it to the "add" mark on the stick.
Will get 2 more quarts and then drive to parts store for more if needed.

Coming to work the oil pressure light was going on as stated.
After adding 2 quarts i started it, and the "Low oil level" orange light is now on in the dash !
but the oil pressure light is off. I shut it down after one minute.

I have no idea where the oil went, and would hate to think they did not put 5qtrs in at last oil change....
I mean i have almost 2K on it since last change ?!


UPDATE:
got 2 more quarts, added 1. dipstick reads practically full and "low oil level" light is off now.
gonna risk it and drive 30 miles home. will stop half way and check dipstick again.
thanks.

Sorry pal. I know that's disappointing and frustrating too. I hope you're back on the road soon.
