My car started making a weird noise on my drive home from work tonight. I got home, did some research, and discovered that the noise sounds a lot like "engine knock". I checked my oil level, and it's borderline low-ish. Is is OK to drive to a mechanic or should I walk/take the bus to AutoZone and top up the oil before starting it again? Am I already completely screwed? [more inside]

I seen this oil at home depot called "Powermate Non-Detergent 4-Cycle Engine Oil - 10W30" my oil knowledge is at a beginner level but I thought multiweight oils were a emulsion. How do they make a 10w30 oil if there is no detergent in it?
