Question about 1995 Dodge Stratus
Sorry to tell you the bad news but I have to. Please do not loose time to try turn the engine.You cause more problems inside the engine. Since you cracked the oil pan and you drove the car since it died,you seized the engine, you manage to turn the rod bearing on the crank shaft and the rod as well because there was no oil to avoid friction.
What you should do? Ask an expert to check your car and give you the correct advice. Do not try any more to start the car.

I had the same issue and it turned out to be grounding issues. by that I mean ALL of my grounds were rusted/loose/ too small wire/ ect.
To curb this issue i had to locate multiple grounding wires on the engine and that little wire running from the ground terminal to the front cross member was heating up because so much current draw through it- after locating grounding wires, Sanding the connections and using petroleum jelly AND replacing the ground terminal and Positive terminal the issue cleared up.
The only reason i knew it was ground issues on my car was finding that one chassis ground wire heating up from just running my car.

When you turn the key, does the starter turn? If you just hear a humming sound, then the arburture (the little gear in the starter) is turning but not ingagging into the flywheel (the big gear that turns your motor). Also, if it starts to turn the motor but then stops, it could be the starter as well, maybe the solenoid that attaches to the starter is starting to go. Hope this helps.

first you must determine if it has fire, and fuel pressure if so then injector pulse. Any OBD codes???? you really need a scanner to go any further without guessing.

you said you took a comp. check, what was it? If it's as flooded as you say, maybe the rings are washed down and you need to put a few squirts of oil into each cylinder and crank it over before putting plugs back in. If the comp. is below 100 that's not enough. try putting the oil in and trying another check on a couple cylinders. If it's up now, around 130-150 than you're getting somewhere. if not how about the timing chain jump?
