ENGINE KNOCKING WHILE RUNNING AND WHILE ON IDLE AND THE ENGINE OIL LIGHT IS HIGHLIGHTED. TH ENGINE SOUNDS LIKE A RICKETY OLD JALOPY. HELP?

2003 Hyundai Accent • 10 miles

Make Accent GLS 1.6 litre petrol engine. ABS equipped.

Got it from servicing last afternoon from a local garage and took it out for a spin last evening. The engine knocks emitting a rather odd 'metal knock' sound. Even while the ignition is on and the car stops for a red light, the knocking never stops. The 'engine oil' light has flashed ON since that sound started.

I've checked- Yes, the engine is tanked up with oil.
The radiator too has water and shows no signs of heating up.

What could the problem be?

Appreciate your help.

Thanks & Regards,

Khan.

Check the engine oil pressure with a mechanical gauge if normal replace the oil pressure switch abnormal could mean engine bearings or oil pump
