If the engine locked up while driving, that could cause the transmission to also lock up and make the car some to a screeching hault. It could cause damage to axles, transmissions, torque converters, etc.

Is replacing an oil pan in a 2004 toyota camry an easy fix ?

It isn't too hard. You need to drain the oil first ( make sure to change the gasket around the plug every time you remove and replace the plug or it will leak), then drop the oil pan... put down lots of absorber pads as there will be droppings. Have a rag on hand for your hands. Scrape and clean the old seal where the oil pan meets the engine then put on a new one once it is thoroughly cleaned. Put on new pan, or repair old one.... again make sure to replace oil pan gasket and new oil drain gasket ( around plug..) since your going that far get a new oil filter also.... fill the new filter with oil before installing, fill up the engine with new It takes a few minutes to run down so wait between oil bottles and check the level ( don't run the car) fill the oil until the dip stick reads full ( remember wait a few minutes between each liter of oil to give it a chance to leak into the bottom of the engine). I believe it is around 4.5 quarts including the amount needed to fill the filter.

I drove my car and it had no oil it turned off while driving now it wont start whats wrong with it?

If you drove it without oil and it heated up enough you seized the engine and you are out of luck. Engine rebuild or replacement is your only option. Check this out with a mechanic first before getting crazy though.

I think my 2000 Toyota Camry engine may be seized up but not sure what can do to know fo sure

Take out all the spark plugs, remove the inner right fender plastic skirt, put the trans in neutral, and with a socket wrench, try turning the engine by the crankshaft pulley bolt. If it does not easily turn, it is seized.

CAR DIED WHILE DRIVING,will not restart ,crank shaft very hard to turn by hand with all belts off timing belt and timing marks are perfect.3.0l camry

Oooh, your timing belt is OK? and the engine is hard to turn? You may have suffered an engine seizure due to oil starvation. Some Toyota Camry engines around this year suffered bad sludging, leading to this. If you take the spark plugs out, place the trans in neutral, and the engine is still hard to turn at the crank pulley, oooh, I think it is partly seized, sorry.

If not, I think the timing belt jumped a tooth or 2 (if old), or the fuel supply dropped pressure, or the spark failed at the igniter.

2002 audi a4 doesnt move while its in drive

What oil got changed? Engine oil? Trans. fluid? How long have you had the car since the output shaft seal was changed? What codes do you have coming from the TCM?
Improper fluid levels or incorrect fluid type will cause severe problems with these units.

It can be the oil pump or the Oil added is to Think.
I recomend ,
Go to Your Nearest auto repair garage.

And if is possible to Put an Analogo gauge to check the oil pressure.
Analogo gauge is a tool that we use to see the OIL pressure on cars.
After this procedure they will recomend or give suggestion to the problem..

Trans does not want to respond in reverse & o/d light is flashing

With high mileage automatic transmissions, that have not been regularly replacing the transmission oil, it can cause major problems if you do change the oil. The sealing integrity in the valve block can be lost by flushing with new oil,
Firstly, just check and make sure the oil level is correct. Do this by running the engine, with your foot on the brake, go through all the shift positions 2-3 times, holding in those positions for a few seconds each time. Then put into park , still with the engine running, and check the oil level . if its a little low, add a small amount at a time till you get the correct level, each time going through the shift positions and then checking.

Bad engine noise low oil pressure

as for the 93 model i would say if the oil pump isn't working properly chances are that the crank and con rod bearings will be damaged and possibly piston i'm not sure about repairers where you are but if i were to pay $1200 i would expect the motor to be rebuilt too if it has done some serious damage i woul suggest a reconditioned engine you should be able to pick one up for around $1500-$2000 and most of them come with 2 yr warranty firstly id check the oil filter and see wether there are any debris in it such as metal or brass filings as for the 98 model with oil pressure light flickering on and bad engine knock i would think it was either a small end bearing or a big end bearing probably best not to drive it to long with a bad knock because a worn out big end bearing can end up letting the con rod come loose and break or bend causing serious damage ask your mechanic to check the engine oil pressure with a guage and put a new oil filter on it (Could be blocked)

'00 Mercury GM - oil all ran out, engine seized - runs poorly now

Your problem is that you ran the engine without oil. In doing so, you damaged most (if not all) the bearings in the engine. There is nothing you can do to make this engine better except to do a complete rebuild. Bad bearings will result in extra internal friction. Thus engine will run terrible, probably knock, have less power, and use more gas.

I drove it with no oil in the car and it just shut off and i do not know why

the reason it stopped is because the engine needs oil to lubricate it if it dose not get lubricated chances are you have done some seriuos damage to the engine if it stopped sudden you might have seized the engine up so it might need replaced hope i have helped you
