    The car ran perfectly before parking it and thanks for the suggestions, checked the relay fuse and other electrical, added little fuel in the throttle -it ran little bit and dies. Figured it must be the fuel pump. You're are right, it was the fuel pump. Removed and replaced the fuel pump and now the car runs great! Although, wished I have known that the fuel tank need not to be dropped. Imagine, removing almost full tank of gas. It was hell!

    Again, Thank you for the helpful hints.

Does the engine turn over ? if not then check your battery/charging system....and check for anything that my have been left on or you may have some kind of a draw . if it does turn over then check for fuel pump activity by putting a hose down the filler neck and have someone turn the key to start...if you don't hear the buzzing noise of the pump turning then odds are it's your pump ...I hope this helps ...I can help you better if you describe exactly what the car is the check engine light on ? how well did it run before ? will it start up at all?

1997 dodge intrepid the oil light stays on been on for months no bad engine noises and the level is ok

You need to replace the oil pressure sending sensor but I'd have the actual oil pressure checked to be sure the oil pressure is'nt low as that could cause severe damage. I assume your oil level is correct and the oil isn't "foamy" or "milky" looking on the dipstick.
