I have a 2001 saturn sc1 with about 130k miles on it. About 500-1000 miles ago the oil light started blinking randomly on and off. I took little note of it until recently when I finally got around to putting oil in. I let the car sit for about a day, and when I started to drive it the car could not accelerate well past 2000 rpm and at that point it made a weird clinking noise. As I tried to accelerate faster, the clinking got faster. Finally I was driving down the road and suddenly the noise drastically changed kinda sounding like I was dragging something on the road. This continues for maybe 15 seconds at the most until finally all the dashboard lights came on and the engine shut off. I tried to start it again, but the car is dead. What could be wrong?
have the same problem?
