I have a 2003 jetta. A couple days ago out of nowhere my engine started running VERY loud when it’s idling and accelerating. It sounds like I have a boat motor for an engine or something.
Then yesterday the red oil pressure warning light turned on and it turns on and stays on everytime I use my car.
And now just an hour ago, I drove my car for about 5 miles and by the 5th mile the engine temp gauge was up about 3/4’s of the way to the red zone.
This all started after I brought my car in to get a headlight replaced and an oil change. I’m not sure if that’s relevant or not because I don’t know much at all about cars.
At first I thought the engine was just running poorly because of how cold it’s been here in MA, but clearly I was wrong because this problem has gone from bad to terrible, extremely fast lol.
Does anyone know what could be causing all of this to happen? Again I don’t know much about cars but at this point I’m assuming there’s most likely something horribly wrong with my car
