Mein Auto: 1997 BMW 318i
1997 318i wont start

Hey guys! First time on here and I could really use some help with my BMW. I few days ago I was driving my 1997 318i sedan on the freeway and my car began to make a clicking noise as I pressed the gas pedal. The noise would become louder as the vehicle sped up then lower as the gears shifted. Engine light also came on. I quickly saw an Autozone stopped and figured it was an oil issue. I check the dip stick and I was slightly low, so i purchased a quart and added 0w-40 mobil 1 synthetic oil (probably should have been 5w-30). Now the noise still continued and I was almost home so decided to make the trek their. On the way the engine stopped running and had to tow the car home. Now the engine wont start and before I take it to a mechanic and get robbed of my money I'd like to hear you guy's opinion.
