Hi guys, so yesterday I drove my car without checking my oil. It made this strange sound, after i poured 5 litre of oil its still making the same sound.

What can i do to make the sound go away? What is it that i may have damaged inside? What needs to be done for the sound to go away?

Very likely significant engine damage if parts were running without oil.

Thanks for the answer. Guess I'll have to diagnose it. Its still running smoothly but there's a strange noise when u hit the pedal

Main and rod bearings would be the most likely thing damaged. Oil pump could be to if it was sucking air. Any idea how long it was low on oil and where it all went?

5 litres comes to 5.25 quarts.

I thought the pans were 4.25 quarts. Or something like that.

And no oil light or anything to indicate out of oil?

Can you describe the sound? If you lost all your oil, bad things happen, most likely a spun bearing. That is a complete engine rebuild. I am curious, what does your dipstick read now? 5.25 quarts should over fill it to the point it will be burning oil at the top of the engine and slug it down because it cannot spend easily.
