Hey I have a 95 celica gt I was racing :( when we stopped my engine was making a canstant tapping noise. I realized my car has a slow oil leak and I did not replenish it for a while so I checked my oil and sure enough I was running my car without oil it was bone dry. I took it to the the shop they said it was the crank and bearing he said I should get a new engine... Any suggestions? Is it possible there's another problem? Thanx any feedback is appreciated.

Welll try running it with some synthetic oil for a bit, and see if the knocking goes away. If you can get away with it, it will save you the money on a new engine.

Good luck

if u killed the baring you might be able to replace those without droping in a whole new mottor.

Not if he scored the crank, not to mention whatever else damage happened while running high rpms with no oil.

Sorry man, but not checking your oil :hammer:

ok

i have gotten a lot of different opinions from alot of people. I mixed in this thing for my oil my friend said if it was just the lifter it would go away but its still is there. Do I have to open up the head to find out exactly what the problem is and if it's the crank is it better just to get a new engine?
