I have a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 Sport with a 5.9L V8 Magnum. My motor has been pinging for a little while. I checked my oil and its almost bone dry! It still runs but im just wondering if I hurt my engine running it with no oil.

Do you
have the same problem?

YES it will hurt your engine if it has no oil. You need to have it serviced or fill the oil. If you don't, you are going to cause internal damage to the engine.

Put oil in it and see if the noise stops. Hopefully, it will be okay. However, I'm not there to hear it. I hope you understand.
