Don't try to start it without oil. Did you refill with oil and now it won't start? Engine damage might have occurred if you drove it without oil till it shut off on it's own. have your mechanic diagnose your issue. Coolant leaked out too? did you find out from where?


If you lost all the coolant and oil then your engine probably has a big hole in the side from a thrown rod. Was there a big bang just before losing all the oil?


It is also possible that you have a hole in a piston.

No i didnt find out where the oil or coolant are leaking from And thank you for all your input everyone!

And i put 2 qs oil in and coolant looked like the oil just ran straight bone dry almost
