Thats serious! why did all the oil come out? oil pan drain plug gone? look for hole in oil pan,did you run over something? did car overheat? find where the oil came out of motor, it could be simple as oil pan drain plug gone, or as bad as a busted motor block. the noises you heard were the engine running dry of oil, which is a very bad thing! you need to have it looked at by a mechanic before you try starting it again. no oil in it!!do not try to start it without the oil please!!hope this helps @ sorry for your truble, good luck!!

I'm afraid the prognosis is terminal - the cost of replacing the motor exceeds the vehicles value. I'm certain serious damage occurred deep in the motor and you need to replace it. Oil cannot come out unless there is an exit - mainly a hole in the side of the block or cylinder head, most commonly the block, or a part of the motor made a hole through the oil pan - either way I think your motor is toast.The stall was that part coming off the motor and causing the hole for the oil to exit, which also seized the motor.
Sorry to bring you bad news, but You'd be best served to shop for a new car and sell that one for scrap.

I have a 2000 Dodge Neon, I was driving down the road and it made a grinding noise and died... It started spraying coolant everywhere. I've tried to restart it, but it won't start. It turns over, just...


more than likely the radiator went and has affected the transmission lines thus the car will not start.happend to me and all the trans fluid had leaked down the road the car stalled and then overheated would not move .only saw coolant not trans fluid since it drip out on the road prior to stalling.another option is the water pump or center freeze plug our had rusted through before and was a hassle to replace

The "service engine soon" light just appeared on my 1997 Dodge Neon after I put in some oil. I bought the car second hand so I am not sure what oil was used before. I am wondering if anyone knows why it...


its because the car is due for a service soon,it gives you about 800 to 1000m warning of an impending bill .....
if you did lots of stop/start motoring the "service engine soon" light would come on sooner than lots of highway motoring.
just adding oil is not servicing the engine....and once done it needs reseting...
