Terazza
When i bought that car 2006 terazza when i was driving back about a 100 miles and the oil light came on but just for an hour. Then there was a dinging. Someone said this could be bad. They said change the oil and oil switch. The dinging. Like a car door is an alarm telling you that theres something wrong with the car. Whats your take. Thanks

It's may be toast going by your description. Assuming that you didn't mention about checking it or if had any oil not much else can be considered about the condition.

If it's electrical or mechanical problem with the oil you may consider a trusted shop to scan it then a decision. Tossing in a oil sending unit, new oil and filter may take care of it but it's not a absolute as nothing is known why the problem occurred in the first place.
