Hi Bobby,
Its a known fact that Chrysler built engines have weak oil pumps in their engines,If you check out the questions under Dodge ,Chry,Ply,Jeep, There are so many Questions of oil lights flickering at stop lights at an Idle,But if your oil level was full it should have maintained enough pressure not to seize up on you,But you should have heard the top of the engine tapping indicating the oil pressure was not reaching the rocker arm first.

Started up my acura tl 2000 and started to hear knocking and shut off


Check oil level and oil pump. Oil pump light should turn off after a few seconds after start up. If light stays on for more then 3 second shut off and do not drive or run motor.
