About how long could I drive with just a drop of oil on the tip of dipstick? I had an oil change and after driving 2 months I heard a noise like metal scretching under the hood, then a knocking noise. I checked the oil and did not regester until after putting a quart in it. Could this cause engine damage be the oil change place not putting enough oil in my engine and me driving it 2 months?

I would have to say that there is serious engine damage already done with the sounds you are discibing, That is why it is important to check your oil atleast at every fill of gas, chances are depending on the miles put on in 2 months your car is using some oil and that is way to long to go without checking it sure hope you the best with you and your car but it sounds like the writing is on the wall.
