Sounds like you either burned a piston or broke a piston rod. Also you might have bent a valve. The bad news is that these repairs are very expensive. Goodluck and PEACE

Once your belt snapped all of your cars power was running off of the battery (lights, radio, spark plugs, etc.), then your battery died. Therefore you have no power to turn your starter and apply a spark. Get someone to jump your car, once your car is started allow it to run for a little while to charger your battery back up. Batteries don't allways charge up properly either so you may end up needing a battery, depending on its age.

Have a 95 chevy lumina, the oil light came on and the engine died. Added oil, now car will not start.


How long was the oil light on before the engine died? Did you hear any noises coming from the engine before it died? If the oil light was on for a while and you were still driving on it, the engine could have seized up which would explain why it won't start back up. Do you know why the oil light came on? Do you have an oil leak that you're aware of or have you seen blue smoke coming out of your tailpipe while driving? There are a lot of different scenarios that could have happened with this.

best advice here is to ask a local mechanic to have a look as engine shouldnt have started knocking with teh new oil in unless someone has put tranny fluid into teh engine or something stupid ,the lights for the airbag shouldnt be connected but the oil light ?? Do not drive car untill a mechanic has come around and checked it out for you though as this oil light coming on and knocking noise is serious

I need more info. Any trouble lights come on? Was it low on oil? Was the engine overheated? What was the coolant level? Were you towing at the time? Give me all you know and I can give you some ideas what it might be.

Toyota has a problem with sludge in the engine which clogs up the oil pump pick up.Which could lead to oil starvation and engine damage.There is a recall on this if you meet requirements.Contact your dealer.

Need help diagnosing problem


Sounds bad :-(
The "oil light" is an oil pressure light, which is different from what the dipstick measures. Without oil pressure to the engine's bearings they are quickly destroyed.

I fear you may have to replace the engine :-(
