High Temp / Low Oil Pressure light came on and now my 04 explorer will not even turn over any ideas??

Asked by May 05, 2015 at 09:25 AM about the 2004 Ford Explorer

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

driving home from work this morning with no problems I stopped at a local store shut off engine and thought it sounded funny when I restarted but the explorer ran fine for the next 4 miles with no problem. Now I get home and think about this funny sound I might have heard so I decide to start the car after getting it home and now it want even turn over.

Check the oil level and the coolant in the engine. Hopefully you did not fry the engine.
