It sounds like you may have run your car very low on oil and hurt the engine, sorry to say.

Thanks for the advice. What do you think could cause the oil to leak? I heard of this year model having an interior oil seal leak. What do you think about that? I currenly have 96593 miles on my 300, I got an oil change around 92,000 5w-20 motor oil. Running it this long without an oil change, do you think that could have cause the problem? Let me know what you think.
