Motor wasn't making noises just went dead going down road no warning, check engine light wasn't on. Oil pressure was low and was using more oil than normal. No knocking or ticking. It was running ok. Oil needed to be changed. Didn't make any noises when it quit, just went dead.

Can you turn the engine over or is it locked up? If it locked up then its time for another engine, if it still turns over then it could be something electrical, check for blown fuses and main power supplies.

Try spraying some starting fluid down the throttle body. It should run a few seconds on that. If so it's a fuel problem. If not it's either an ignition (no spark) problem or it's jumped timing. To check for a jumped timing chain do a compression test. If all cylinders test very low or zero, it's jumped timing. HTH. -Jim
