get it checked out by a qualified technician...that will keep your baby going for a lot longer - unless you are technically inclined I would advice against going it yourself; maybe the cost of diagnostics may be well worth it so that you either get peace of mind knowing its no biggie or you prevent a major breakdown....
your car is OBD I. you can pull the code yourself and check it in your bentley manual. to pull the code: turn ignition to 2nd position, pump gas pedal all the way to the floor 5x befor your abs light goes out, this should make your check engine light start flashing in a series of blinks, in which you can determine the code. also, it will probably take a few tries to get it, but don't give up.

Go to the main forum. Under"FAQ/DIY" section, click on "maintenance and troubleshooting". Scroll down til you see "fault codes" by someone named "Furious". There will be the info you seek. BTW, if pushing the pedal down 5 time in 5 seconds doesn't work, try doing it faster or slower, there has to be a certain rhythm.

I was driving on the freeway back home from my aunts house going about 80-100.
As I slow down to take the exit ramp I notice my engine is making noise.
I roll down the window and notice that the same little noise that appeared when the check engine light appeared is now louder. After pulling into my drive way and bringing the vehicle to a complete stop, I notice that it sounds like my grandpa's old ass 1 cylinder diesel engine tractor!!!!
I pop the hood and pull out the oil stick and notice that the engine begins to fail when I do so. When I pop it back in it keeps running, when I pull it out it begins to choke again, but manages to stay alive. I wipe the stick and poke it back in, up and down, twist a few times, and pull it up....
there is no oil in my car
how come my oil light didn't come on?
I asked a friend who knows quite a bit about cars and he said that I probably scratched the cylinders.
