Exclamation Low Oil Warning Light & Engine damage

My son drove my 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo with low oil warning light. He then later went to crank it and it would not turn over. The oil was topped off (2 quarts) but now the engine is running rough with excess exhaust. Any thoughts for next step. Thanks

Re: Low Oil Warning Light & Engine damage

If he drove it hard with the light on for some time, the engine could now be toast from overheating and lack of lubrication. You said it would not turn over when he tried to restart; you mean the starter would not crank, or the engine would not start ? I assume you also checked the dipstick after the engine is hot, to make sure you did not overfill the crankcase after adding the 2 quarts .... that can also cause rough running.
