Engine started making a slow knocking sound and i noticed it was low on oil so i took it straight to get the oil changed. After the oil change it still made the noise. Now it wont start.

How low was it on oil? Did the car overheat?

real low. Maybe 1 quart or so. A week ago it was fine and i dont see any leaks. It did not overheat. It sounds like it wants to start but it just cranks.

Might be something failed internal to the engine. But if it cranks, can you hear the fuel pump prime/buzz when you turn the key?

Actually it sounds like it has no compression. Could never really hear the fuel pump before it happend.
