Mobile1 Synthetic. I guess now is the time to tell the whole story. The oil was last changed in August and I've driven 2,000 miles since then.
I noticed my engine was ticking on Thursday, so I popped the hood & checked the oil. She was bone dry. I haven't seen anything to indicate that oil had been leaking. It wasn't running hot, normal temperature on the gauge. Filled her back up with oil on Thursday but the ticking has gotten slightly worse and there is a soft knocking now. It's beyond me how there was no oil after 2,000 miles.
I literally just got back from the dealership. They won't get to it until Monday, however, the mechanic took a listen to it. He said the unthinkable, "it doesn't sound good, from my experience with this noise it's never been good. We may have to drop it and repair some portion of the engine." Ugh, I'm trying to watch football but I just can't seem to focus knowing that.
Also, didn't mean to hijack, I saw Delray subject and thought some of you might have some insight!
