I am afraid she is dead... you have ran it without any oil to speak of
and that's deadly for any engine and surely for a TS..

Re: oil full, but warning light still on?????

Trying not to do the told you so thing here but it just happened, you obviously didn't do the flush and oil change that I suggested in both of your other 2 threads and now your engine has gone the way I warned you of, at this point and assuming it's only just started knocking I'd repair it for half the cost of a replacement, because it sounds like you'll get away with just replacing the big ends and cleaning out the oil system, though the head would need to come off for a thorough job. I guess your sisters off the xmas card list now. Oh and I found my spare oil cap in the boot this morning.
