'91 750il running while no oil (archive)

My friend was using the car - after the 4th day, he came to me and said the car was running funny. Immediately I thought 'limp home.'

There was no oil on the stick! My heart nearly stopped. The car never recovered. I got the code 2221 - oxygen sensor. My dad noticed that he could pull the cable from the driver side air flow sensor and the car would stall - but the passenger side air flow sensor cable could be pulled with the engine still running.

I was hoping for the air flow sensor since they are so easy to change.

What do you think?

A quick thought or two might lead me in the right direction.
Also, does limp home need to be reset or something?

Thanks, mates!
