Why did it run out of oil and how much did you have to put in to fill it up ? If you had to put in 3 quarts or more and don't have any sudden leaks your best bet would be to go to a scrap yard and get a new engine.

Lets say i check motor oil and i drive for 6 hours and check it again and its needing more motor oil why?


Because you lost some oil from the crankcase. You either have a leak, usually from a worn or broken gasket, or your engine is burning oil. Inspect the bottom of the engine and see if there is excessive oily wetness indicating a leak. If you don't see evidence of a leak, the engine is starting to burn oil - the piston rings or valve guides are getting worn, and allowing oil to get into the combustion area of the cylinders.

BLOWER MOTOR QUIT AND FAN SWITCH BURNED OUT ON 98 CHEV SILVERADO


Sounds like you didn't add oil , when freon goes the oil goes also. When you say locked up , you mean the compressor won't turn when the clutch engages? Either too much freon or the oil was gone from the system when you put freon in it.

Changed oil, filter came off while driving, didnt run hot but stopped and wont start again


does it turn over at all? Or does starter just click? Oil may have dripped on wiring or in solenoid. If starter and motor turn over fine but won't start than I don't think the problem is related and it is just a coincidence. If you have lost all of your oil while driving, than it means your motor is seized and you will have to put in more oil and use a prybar and socket and turn the motor over manually by crankshaft pulley to break the piston loose

Water in intake...not much


sounds like a head gasket is leaking, or worse, one of the water channels is cracked in the head.

a teardown is your best bet... sorry for the bad luck

Toyota Paseo leaking oil


Do you have any Leaks on the Ground where you Park? If not, You really need to get that Motor Overhauled. Your Motor is Burning the oil Because ther Rings are Worn out in the Motor and the Motor is Detonating the Oil and Burning it. a Rebuild is the Only Solution.

It sounds like the car was ran out of oil.The engine bearings and crankshaft journal are probably scarred.The noise you are hearing is more than likely a piston rod slapping around about to break loose from the crankshaft.So,yes the engine is toast...Sorry..Good Luck!!!
