Help with 2000 Pontiac Grand Am GT

2000 Pontiac Grand Am GT is making a horrible knocking noise when driving and gets even louder when I stop. Also when I stop, the entire car shakes from this noise. It sounds like a cough so to speak. This just started happening yesterday and when it did, I discovered that there was little oil in the car. I put two qts of oil in (was at a gas station at the time) but the noise remains. I'm afraid it's the engine because the service engine soon light came on and was blinking steadily. Any suggestions would be appreciated.


  • Stop driving it!! You're engine may be totaled but if you continue to drive it then tou will ruon watever is left of it..... btw you should NEVER let ur oil get low. Thats wat lubricates all youe pistons in youe engine and if there is no oil then they get hot n melt and rub away at the walls of the engine. You should always check ur oil everytime you fill up with gas. If ur lucky u can save ur engine. But if not I'd consider either finding another engine or car.
