If the oil light is on and the engine is making a noise it is likelt the engine has no oil pressure. The light comes on at very low pressure so if it on with the engine running the engine is likely being damaged. Disable the ignition, unscrew the oil filter and crank over the engine oil should gush out if it doesn't the engine has NO oil pressure and should not be run.
