and dented my oil container, now oil warning light is on and loud noise is heard from the engine compartment, but when i rev the engine over the 2500 rpm, the noise stops and the oil warning disappears. the oil is toped up and it's not leaking through the dent. and the noise is constant not depending on the rpm, bet when i go over 2.5K it stops.
any thoughts??

The noise has to depend on the rpm, If the oil light is on below 2500 rpm then you have either lost oil or the pumps packing up, either way the sump has to come off, it may have also hit it so hard that the engine has jumped and trashed a mount, and possibly the exhahaust too.

Might be you've wrecked the oil pick up in teh sump so you're not always getting a good oil feed to the pump :(
