The OIL LIGHT will come on when the Car Dies. Crankshaft Sensor, Fuel Issue. Is there Spark? Will it start if you spray Starting Fluid into the Intake while it is cranking?

Trying to determine if the Fuel Pump failed or another reason... Report back with the above information

    the oil light STILL is on, and car still wont run. I DO hear the fuel pump run when i turn the key. I just had it tow home so i'll be able to do more. Im thinking maybe the oil pump went out and it triped the Auto shut down relay.(?) I really dont know if this is something that the PCM would do.(?) Secondly i'm thinking maybe PCM went bad. Prior to this car shuting down the lights on my in-dash CD changer started flashing (still flashing) and my lights for my AC/HEATER went out (still out). Im going to be scanning it for the code(s) next. Hopefully it recorded something.

    Shows no code. Has to be a bad PCM.(?)

SOURCE: car dies suddenly while driving all speeds

Hi krh60, I would strongly recommend having the cps (cam positioning sensor) and the css (crank shaft sensor) checked immediately, both can cause your problem and both throw no codes when running, in early stages the vehicle may start again or it may not. Ford also has a cps problem on their 7.3's also see if Chrysler has a recall on these parts you may get lucky hope this helps good luck to you.

Did you top up the oil? some cars will shut down when the oil light comes on it usualy turns off the fuel pump and is a safey design of the car to stop the engine in a roll over situation and can also save your engine if it runs low on oil.

I have a 1999 Legacy. Died while I was driving. Oil didn't register on dip stick. Won't start now. It turns over fine. Has power, compression, oil & fuel pressure is good. Plugs are dry(Not saturated)....

Could have overheated because low on oil, the engine may not start until the computer is reset, a safty feature which keeps the engine from damage in such cases., Take it to a mechanic to reset the computer if you think the oil being low was the main issue.

Engine size?see if the cam is turning when you try to crank it, (look down the oil filler cap hole) if its not turning the timing belt is broken. A shop will need to replace it. I recommend the water pump and pullies be replaced, cam and crank seals. If its a 4 cylinder be sure to replace the oil pump seal and gasket.

Sounds like you may have spun some bearings in lower part of the engine if you hear metal to metal sound and had no oil pressure.Serious engine damage!!

Some smart car will shut down the engine if the oil presure is low. If you think it is the case then after you put the oil at correct level, it should start. Since it died while you were driving and you could not start after that, I think the problem is the crankshaft sensor. It is getting bad. Have it check out and replaced.
