Question about 2002 Toyota Celica
Im driving down the road and realize im not accelerating. i look up and the battery light is on, like the car was off. so i pull over and find that my oil filter has come off. replaced that and still wont start. i took a computer to it and it gave me a few errors like crankshaft position sensor and camshaft position sensor. i know how to replace them but im wondering if it could be anything else.
I hope it's your timing belt/ chain, and not a blown motor. They don't go far with no oil. The fact that it turns over is a good thing. Was there any oil left in it?

If it doesn't turn over for sure you have a blown motor. As the other guy said, engines don't go far without oil. pistons will get sized up in cilinders causing the crank to do not move so the flywheel, that'a why it is not cranking it all. try to grab a braker bar with a 17 mm socket and try to manually turn the crank (make sure the transmission is in neutral position) if it still doesn't move then u know u need another engine. good luck.
