Engine Mechanical problem
2002 Opel Astra 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 81,000 miles

This morning my red oil light came on on the dash. The car is burning oil. I put in too much oil. A large cloud of smoke appeared from the exaust. There is also a knock in the engine. Please advise

Too much oil can cause damage as well as not enough. You may have caused a hydraulicing situation depending on the amount of oil you put in. When an engine hydraulics it can bend connecting rods, hurt bearings, break crankshafts. Etc. I would have a shop look at it to see what has been damaged and the best route for you to take to repair it
