Engine trouble =/

Alright guys so a very depressing day, i went to merge out on to the highway and as vtec was kicking in my engine almost sounded like it backfired, and so i got real nervous and shifted again to slow down a little bit and it made the same backfire like sound. After that my sexy deep purrr my car normally puts out didnt sound anything like it normally does.

It almost sounded like the noise wasn't coming from my muffler any more but a lot more through the actual engine, and it wasn't a good noise. Didn't sound terrible but definitely not good and nothing like normal. Hard to explain haha.

I was really close to my house so i just took it slow to my house since i had no oil light on or check engine light, everything was normal. Now i just had an oil change probably 2 months ago but maybe it was time already I'm not sure just noticed they didn't update the sticker on the window today when i went to look haha. But when i got home i checked the oil and it was verrrry low but not dry. so i got some oil and put only like a little more then 2 quarts in and it was up to the second hole on the dipstick. Turned it back on and let it run a little bit and it sounded a little better but still not that great. and really sounds dead when i turn it off or right when i turn it on.

Also when i turned it back on i noticed that now my atts light and check engine lights are on :(

Sorry i know a lot of the information is vague but if you have any ideas or any help is greatly appreciated

Thanks

Re: Engine trouble =/

well the good news is adding oil helped out a lil bit.
the bad news is being 2 qt's low might've FUBAR'd something.

but more good news is the CEL came on, so you can check that and diagnose from there. readyyy..... GO!!!!
