Sounds like the engine seized from lack of oil. It only takes a minute without oil...

You most likely hit a curb, the pan is cast aluminum and will break like glass if you hit a curb, the pan can be changed without removing the engine, it is very time consuming, but it can be done.

sounds like your passlock sensor on the ignition barrel is faulty. you will have to go to the dealer to have it replaced because of the programming after replacement.

SOURCE: hazard lights wont stop flashing and car wont turn over.

unlock driver door twice consecutively because that's how u disarm the car alarm.As for the radio, input the code that's in ur booklet. If u don't have it, call ur local dealer with the car's serial number and they will give u the radio code. It's 4 digits.

SOURCE: 2000 Alero Security light flashing and wont start

With the new lock cylinder in it, turn the key on. The security light should blink. Leave the key on for 10 minutes, the security light will quit blinking and go out after 10 min. This will reprogram your security system and the car should start. Also leave a battery charger on it while the key is on, If the battery goes dead during the 10 minute reprogram sequence, you will have to start over again.

About a week ago I hit a rock on the road and it busted my oil pan as soon as I pulled over because I saw my oil light blinking my car shut off I just replaced the oil pan and poured the right amount of...


Once the rock hit the oil pan and the oil light came on it should have been turned off real soon. If the engine went dead before you turned the key off, it may have seized and has damage. Put a socket onto the crankshaft nut with a breaker bar and see if the engine will turn; if it turns easily it may be ok, but if its hard to turn or does not turn, the engine is seized and most likely has damage.

Busted oil pan now can wont start tryed cranking to start


Did you replace the oil pan? many new cars have an oil level sensor and will not start if they read low oil so as to prevent the motor from seizing from too much heat and friction/wear.

How to do a oil change


Pull the drain plug, change the oil filter, replace the drain plug. Add oil until the dipstick reads full. Start the engine and make sure the oil light goes out. Check for leaks around the oil filter with the car running. Recheck the oil level, add as necessary. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them.

Does a 2000 Mercury Cougar have any kind of sensor to keep it from locking up the engine when there is no oil? The oil pan busted while driving and engine shut off?


Some cars did have a fuel pump shut off if the oil was low, I don't know about the Cougar. You didn't cook the engine did you? It will run about 2 or 3 mins without oil. Then it is cooked. And how did the oil pan break?? Check it out.

My oil light is coming on, but the oil is full.


Did he inspect the oil pick-up tube before putting new pan on? If the old pan was caved in roughly where pick-up tube would be in pan. it may have bent it up to a point where it doesn't **** up the oil, or the tube could be cracked above the oil level & sucking more air, than oil.
