Asked by Sep 18, 2016 at 04:20 PM about the 2000 Cadillac Seville STS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2000 Cadillac Seville sts had a hole in the oil pan that I did not know
about I drove it about 2 miles realized the oil light was on and dinging got out
checked oil and it was empty put more in it and it still read empty looked
underneath the car and it was pouring out of the oil pan drove it back home
but turned it off and drifted most of the way when I did have it on it was
loosing power. Got home parked it went to the store got new part put it in and
now car won't start it will turn over acts like it wants to start but won't. I have
looked online to try and see what could be the cause but I'm finding nothing I
just hope the engine isn't ruined but I didn't drive it that far without oil in it.
Please someone help me this is my only car and do not have the money to
buy a new one I hope there is a fix for this.

What new part did you put in? Hole in oil pan would require a new oil pan. I'm confused.


Yes a new oil pan. The engine is locked up and I don't know why we tried to turn it over manually and it wouldn't budge.
