I'm sorry you are having problems with your vehicle. I will try to help.

I'm a full time mechanic and have been a mechanic for over 20 yrs and I work part-time here on JustAnswer to help you and others repair their own vehicles, and I get credited by your ratings.. So before leaving the site make sure and leave me a rating. You can still reply to me as many times as neeed, even after the rating.. I will need for you to be my hands and eyes since I'm not there.

So if it is just the anti drain back valve, it isn't recommended but you can drive it. but each time you start the car you will be doing a little bit of damage to the bearings as it will take a second for the oil to be pushed thru the system. It isn't recommended that you drive it, but in an emergency it will get you there.

Thanks Sonny
