Refill the oil and see if you can get the engine to turn. Try turning the crankshaft pulley with a socket. If the engine will not turn, it will have to be rebuilt. If you can get it started, locate the oil leak and get back to us. Even if it will start, it may need to be rebuilt--we'll have to see how it runs. :-(

Possible valve guide seals are leaking motor oil. The motor oil on the spark plugs can cause a misfire and a loss of power.

I was driving and heard a pop noise and then my 97


could be the timing chain. Was it a pop or more like a ping . A ping could indicate a timing chain problem. The tensioner might have gone bad.

I have no low beam headlights or daytime running lights only high beam lights and my high beam indicator light in the dash stays on all the time even with my lights off


You may have a broken or corroded wire, pull open the wire loom that protects the main lighting wire harness behind and around the drivers side headlight area under the hood. There are splices that are known to trap water in them and short out or turn green. Let me know if you need more clarification?
