Customer Question

I have a 1999 4S class Mercedes 145 tho miles. The indicator light came on stating the car was at minimum oil level. So I added a couple of qt of oil. But it keeps coming on every 100 miles or so. there is also a rattle under the car morelike a knocking sound. Can you tell me what this might be before Ibring it to my mechanic so I know what to expect.
Thank You
