Is it safe to put oil in a car that is leaking oil and then drive it to a auto shop down the street. We try to get a tow but there no one avalible. The auto shop is down the street there is no oil in it. Been like that for few days
I suppose the guys at the shop are more the right people to address this issue, especially since you need to make an appointment there and they should be near enough to make an assessment.
So just ask them how you are supposed to bring your car there with a massive oil leak (or broken oil pan?).
Perhaps they organize you a tow truck, tow it while on the road with a tow bar or patch it on site..
IF as per your comments the oil pan or sump is made of steel, then one possible temporary repair is to screw a self-tapping screw or bolt into the hole with plenty of sealant.
This repair worked on an old truck once. Then we took the sump off and welded it, but it lasted a couple of weeks in our case.
If it's less than a mile, no problem! Add 1/2 quart extra oil to the crankcase before you begin. Watch your dashboard for the "low oil" light and shut the car off immediately if it illuminates.
Another alternative would be just to push the car there. Relatively easy to do if you have few people to help. Don't even need to start the engine.
Consult your manual what is the proper way to do this, especially if you have automatic transmission.
It very much depends on how bad the leak is, however I would not recommend it. Not only is there a large risk of damage to your engine if it runs with too little oil in it, but there is also the environmental consideration - and in many countries you'd be opening yourself up for prosecution for causing pollution if it were known that you deliberately drove the car with a large, known oil leak
