So i have been having trouble starting my 04 ford taurus. Checked the battery and it is fully charged. It was completely out of oil so i fixed that but still won't start. I just want to start my car.

  • Welcome to Motor Vehicle Maintenance & Repair! Does the engine turn over at all (starter moves the engine, but no life signs other than that)? When it was running, did it run well? How did it stop running? Any other information you can give us? Please edit your question and and pertinent details. Apr 21, 2019 at 19:44
  • no, the engine does not turn over. the car ran well and everything worked. Apr 21, 2019 at 20:11
  • You said it was "completely out of oil" ... how much oil did you add to get it back to level? Apr 21, 2019 at 20:19
  • i added 4 quarts. Apr 21, 2019 at 20:35
  • Since your car takes 6 quarts of oil, while extremely low, it can live on 2 quarts ... it's not good for your car, but it shouldn't have killed the engine. Apr 21, 2019 at 21:19
