autodoc_2000 :

Can You try to turn the engine over by hand. This will let you know if the problem is electrical or mechanical. Put a socket on the crankshaft bolt and see if you can turn the bolt.

JACUSTOMER-gkdx14gs- :

we have chance the barttery and stater and it sounds like it wants to start but will not

JACUSTOMER-gkdx14gs- :

because it start it she was driving it and the oil light came on the the car just quit working

autodoc_2000 :

If the oil light came on the oil pressure could have been lost and engine damage could occur. Without oil pressure the bearings could have been damaged and siezed the engine. By trying to turn the engine over with a ratchet and socket it will let you know if there is mechanical damage to the bearings.

JACUSTOMER-gkdx14gs- :

the oil is full could thier be a fuel problem

autodoc_2000 :

Fuel will not prevent the engine from turning over unless the cylinders filled up with fuel. This would not cause the oil light to come on though.

autodoc_2000 :

Just because the oil is full does not mean that the oil pressure was correct.
