Hey guys, I was driving on the freeway the other day and I heard my motor start sputtering. As I slowed down, my car just stalled out on its own, and died out. Couldn't start it for a while. I had my car towed back to my house, and i checked the oil level and it was very low. I know i messed up by not checking the levels often, but i added oil, and when i start my car, i hear a loud clicking from the motor. I heard its rod knock? I'm not sure but does this mean my motor is blown?

oil change make sure to look for any shavings, also when you refill the oil use a thicker oil it will help best of luck

It's time for a rebuild.
