shopping came out and on the 3rd time it would not start. It did say time to
service engine.  I checked the oil and very very low,  5 quarts to be exact
which i added right away.  It still won;t start

Lights work. Engine turns. So battery is good. Could it be just not getting a spark

Yes, check the basics first. Spray some starting fluid down the throttle body. It should run a few seconds on the starting fluid. If so, you have spark so it's a fuel problem. If not, check for spark. If you have spark but it won't run on the starting fluid run a compression test. If all cylinders test low or zero it's jumped timing. HTH. -Jim
