    my oil smells a little like gas.

    and when the car is running, it sounds like metal on metal.
    how bad is this?

    Bad...which car?

    Check the oil and make sure its got plenty in it. (I am sure you already have)

    Did you get an oil change lately?

    Knocking is a BAD thing. You still in Houston? Get it towed to a shop before something worse happens.

    Let me know if you need me to pick your ugly *** up, I can get a trailer if need be.

    it's not knocking, it sounds like metal to metal grinding, which is NEVER a good thing. I'm in town, at work.

    So many possibilities to it. Timing chain stripped and grinding, something in the head grinding, crank is grinding, brearing went out and is grinding, oil pump went out...I have no idea, expecially on the new stuff that isnt GM.

    My only suggestion would be get it towed to a mechanic. Let me know if you need anything at all.

    Re: my oil smells a little like gas.

    ive seen cars run for years like that.......and oddly enough a couple were mitsu' lol. It isnt a GOOD thing to run like that though. No clue why it sounds like that other than low oil, or little to no oil pressure...

    IIRC, it had something to with the rings and the Intake That was cracked. Ima try and call him later to see what it was. It was a Chrysler vehicle, which IIRC also makes Mitsubishi cars.
