When i start the engine there is a loud rattling sound coming from the supercharger. I also seem to be using excessive engine oil, will this cause damage to the engine if driven this way? How can i resolve this problem? I have also received codes showing O2 sensor, knock sensor and crankshaft position sensor, do all these sensors need to replaced all at once?

    You need to visit a mechanic and get it checked out. Plan to leave it a few days fo testing. Possible SC bearings and seals, get it checked asap!
