I started my car at -25C (plugged in) and it ran normal. I was going home from work and I could smell a burning plastic scent and my car was filling up with smog. I went to run to the bank, when I was done then my check oil pressure light came one. I shut my car off right away and opened the hood, it looked like black oil was all over my engine. I put as much oil as I could in my car and drove to a gas station. The oil pressure light was going on and off continuously. I got to the gas station and filled my car with more oil, it started fine and the oil pressure light remained off. I drove my car to my garage and shut it off and has remained off since. 15 min after I parked it, there was a big pool of oil underneath. My boyfriend came and checked it over and it seems like it won't hold oil. It is getting towed this morning to the mechanics to have a look at. Regrettably, I have been negligent in checking my oil levels. Any explanations or advice? I know for a fact that my engine has not seized or else it would not have made it to the garage.
