My car ran low on oil and shut off while driving.i then did an oil change on it but it is now having trouble starting?


The engine is probably dieing. Running low on oil is not good, but when the engine dies, it is way worse. This will eat up all the bearings on the crankshaft. If you have low miles, get a crank kit and replace the crank and bearings. You'll have to pull the engine to do this. If it has high miles, find a good used engine to put in it.

Ran out of engine oil and after i refilled, it wont start


I the engine ran completely out of oil, the engine has been cooked and is probably locked up from the friction between unlubricated metal moving parts. Also may have spun bearings which means the main or rod bearings stacked on top of each other causing the engine to lockup. If you ran the engine without oil until it quit you will probably need a new engine.

2002 pontiac gran am son was driving it ran hot I put in coolent and check oil no oil put in oil tried to start it car will turn over but will not start getting gas heard the fuel pump


check oil to see if there is rad fluid in it. if there is you have a cracked head or head gasket. if no rad fluid in oil, check for a spark.pull out a spark plug attach spark plug wire hold close to engine block with gloves and turn over engine. it is best to have someone with mechanical know how to do this,i.e. friend or nieghbor

Have you ran an Oil pressure test? low oil pressure (20lb)or no oil pressure(0lb)and the lifters will not open the valves enough to let fuel in to the cylinder to start your engine!

Car shut off and was low on oil. I added oil but it still won't start.


Hello,
If you ran your engine out of oil and it quit running before you could add more oil you just might have seized your engine. Always keep your engine filled to the proper capacity with oil.

If that is the problem, the engine needs to be rebuilt...

Whats going on


most likely the problem is you have blowby. the oil is coming up past your worn piston oil rings which is causing oil everywheres. start your car and remove the oil dipstick and see if oil comes out. if not you need a engine rebuild or new used motor which would be cheaper in the long run.
