Woah, slow down. You need to check your oil. The best time to do that is at least an hour after the car has not been used, first thing in the morning is a good time. The oil can be misread if the engine has been running recently. If you do not know how to check your oil then just find a friend who does and have them show you. If the oil is really low you may want to put up to 2 Qts in. If it isn't low, you may only want a 1 Qt or maybe a half Qt. There should be no need for 5.
