Hi,

I bought a used 2001 Ford Focus almost 1 year ago.
But last couple of weeks its been making a rattling sound in the engine. Sometimes at stops it stalls and the oil light comes on.

I have checked the oil level and that's fine.

what could be the problem? I was thinking a bent piston.
If this is the case, how much could it cost me to repair it?

Do you
have the same problem?

Not the problem. Even if it is a piston, not worth rebuilding. Get a good used engine instead. You would be looking at about 3500-4000 to re build yours.
A good used one for about 1800-2100

Could be a main or rod bearing. You need a shop to help you identify it for you.
