Turn u key on dnt crack the car hit gas pedal 3 times shud be the light turn off u


could be the fuel pump hun or gas pressure regulator


Have you looked under your car? If the car is leaking oil, the entire underside should be plastered if it lost 4 qts. If the underside is clean, you're either burning it, or the clowns that did your oil change forgot to put in all of the oil. When you got the oil done, did you put in the standard oil,or did you tell them to use synthetic? Once you filled up the oil, did the car start again?

Took my car in the mechanic said it was the anti theft system shut the car down ,also i had someone pull the plug on horn it kept going off on its own ...The oil well if i told you guys about that you would piss yourselves laughing ...one mechanic said they could put it on the scan and see whats going on and the other said dont worry about it unless it happens again anyone have any thoughts or have you heard about this ever happening ... guess i need another car . Thanks Again Barb


So is the oil issue all figured out? Now it's just the alarm that's giving you the issues?
