BIG PROBLEM WITH ENGINE...or is it?????

I got this 98 lube just 5 months ago..I had no idea they burn so much oil...so yeah after getting the low oil sensor ..i guess i musta put in just enough oil to last a week...but i drove it( not too hard only 3500 rpm shifts)...most of the time I was stuck in traffic..however I hear knocking as i accelerate from say 40 kmph to 60 kmph...tht knocking goes away after a few seconds as the car revs on( to 3000..i never go beyond tht now)...my questions is ..is this knocking or ticking??? is my engine screwed?? or i can still fix it?? please help..

sucks. prolly a spun bearing.

didn't you even check your oil after the oil light came on so you know how much to add?

spun bearing will certainly be more work but i dont know about cost. take it to a shop and have them listen to it or post a sound clip/video

Re: BIG PROBLEM WITH ENGINE...or is it?????

If you pay someone to do it, I'd say it might be cheaper as I have only seen H22A's $2500 or more

The bearings are cheap if you mean the main bearing I think I priced some for mine as I was about to do a complete motor build I think I priced them somewhere around US $70 for a set. Now the money comes in the labor to pull the motor and replace the bearings. They might be able to do it under the car but I doubt it. Here in the US you can call a garage and ask what labor would be, tell them what kind of car you have and what you need done and they key it into the computer and it tells them a ruff number of how many labor hours the job takes. Most garges here are about $55 to $80 an hour.
