2005 dodge grand caravan sat for months put in new battery started and run I shut off try to start next day started and ran for 5 min. shut off on its own and will not start again .Battery started Ken

Check the battery voltage. If it's less than 12.2 volts, you've either got a charging problem or something is draining the battery. Read this post on how to find a battery drain.

My Lincoln Continental 2000 Model oil light came on engine stopped after 25 feet. would not restart even though oil full. The car started the next day, but had a rattling sound at the top of the motor

Oil light is rather important it goes out if oil pressure is good comes on if oil pressure is low when it comes on damage is expected with continued operation like wearing of main bearings and pistons and cylinders can lead to a engine rebuild

2001 dodge neon wont start it ova heating obd code p0171. guy at shop says didnt reset drove 2 miles engine light on thn shut off on me it was making loud ratting under hood turned offwont start

This code is for the vehicle running lean ( more air than fuel ). If the vehicle is overheating it can set this code. You will have to check why the vehicle overheated. Low coolant/rad fan/ thermostat are all things that will have to be checked. The rattling noise may have been from EXTREME overheating and serious engine damage could have occured. Have a certified repair shop take a look and find out.

Check engine light as well as the check gages light and the oil pressure gage has dropped to zero. I can shut of the engine and restart and everything is fine until I give it gas.

No magic bullet fix for the issue you are having. You will need to proceed step-by-step to diagnose the issue. Begin by changing the oil filter and the oil, as simply draining the oil from the oil pan may release whatever debris is clogging the oil pickup.
If your engine ran dry on oil, or if oil stopped circulating, and you tried to run the engine anyway, you may have done permanent damage to the engine, necessitating a complete overhaul. You can judge this by the condition of the oil when you change it.

Code 23 dodge caravan My van was making noise when i drove it. Then it seemed like it was having trouble going into gear. After driving it for an hour, I noticed my engine oil was completely empty. Then...

You are doomed.That rattle you are hearing are your bearings that have spun,because of oil starvation.The engine is damaged and is not safe to drive because it could throw a connecting rod thru the engine block which will throw oil on the pavement causing you to skid out of control.This will be costly to fix! A engine rebuild or engine replacement will have to be done.

when you flushed with kerosene and diesel you mixed the same two things together,,,, I don't ever do this because it loosen up debris and gunk and deposit and puts them where you don't want it...if you are concerned then change your oil more often....the one time i did do it I added kerosene to the oil that was still in the engine and ran it for less than 2mins...its scary...the problem is most likely the lifters (tapits) it is far better to let them go than flush your engine like you did.....let em go or put new ones in....hope this helps

Sounds like your oil ran low and the pistons and rods are runnig without oil. This will seize the engine check your oil if it is real low put some oil in it and try to start it. If it starts you got lucky. Tahn find out how you lost all your oil before runnig it to much. If the engine doen't turn over than your motor is no good.
