What Engine is in this vehicle? Well....I'm afraid this scenario does not sound good. If you ran out of oil...and...the engine started making a "rumbling" noise"...and now "won't turn over"...you may have seized the Engine. How much OIL was added to bring her to the full mark?. I would be tempted to remove the spark plugs and attempt a Compression test of each cylinder. If the Engine will not CRANK OVER with a fully charged battery for the compression test.....you most likely need an engine tear down for inspection to determine engine damage. Get back to us with result.
