"ran out of oil"....now how's this gonna happen without making a mess, dripping on the highway on in your driveway....do we know where's it leaking from? fresh oil and filter are pertinent more so than spark plugs...like trimming your beard when you are about to lose your head!~

Tammy, you've got to have oil pressure, or the car will seize and shut down~

pull the dipstick, tell me the color and level, if there ain't none the OIL cap will gladly accept three quarts...but first change the oil filter~

my 62 VW beetle made it over the grade with the lite on, then threw a rod~....so you need oil pressure--

it is leaking from the valve cover down into the spark plug wells? get a new valve cover gasket if this is what's happening~

i got the new valve cover gasket now i will go get a new filter & see what happen

You need a mechanic to check it out. If you ran out of oil, it's going to take more than a spark plug and a gasket to make it right.
