sorry for the delay.............Greetings...... “Hi, I’m Don (akaCustomer and I look forward to helping you!”.This sounds like the engine "could be seized" as no oil can cause serious damage internallyIF you know the Battery is fully charged & the Starter clicks when turning the key to "crank", then you need to disconnect the Battery & try to turn the engine Crankshaft / Pulley by hand.It would be easier to turn the Crankshaft / Pulley if all the Spark Plugs are removed, but if you use a long breaker Bar & socket that fits the Crankshaft Bolt, you should be able to get it from underneath.IF the engine / crankshaft does not turn, then the engine is "seized".IF you need more information, please ask "prior" to Rating..
