Was driving when i started smelling a burning smell. Then my engine light came on and the car started feeling a bit rough. Realised i had barely any oil. Filled it up thinking that would be it but the engine light still wont go off and the car still drives a but rough to me.
My car has a manual transmission.
Hello there. In most cases, when your engine is extremely low on oil, internal engine components will begin to heat up and eventually create metal-to-metal contact. This can cause serious engine damage. If damage has occurred inside the motor, adding oil unfortunately is not going to fix the damage. You might want to have a professional mechanic come to your location and complete a check engine light inspection to start; so they can identify what is causing the light to illuminate. Hopefully internal engine damage has not occurred.
