The Oil light went on and the car died. would not start

Customer Question
The Oil light went...

The Oil light went on and the car died. would not start again. would it kill the car if low oil?

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

Oil light below or beside the speedometer. I'd have to go look at the car to make sure of its location. It was a red rectangular light that said Oil.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your car?

Chrysler New Yorker brougham 1978

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your New Yorker yourself? What have you tried so far?

Oh no I'm just trying to determine what could be wrong so I can try and find a shop to have it towed to. My local Chrysler dealership won't work on a vehicle of that age.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

There was some oil leaking from it over that past few months. Maybe 1/2 cup total. More transmission fluid leaking than motor oil. Had the car fixed in a garage 3 years ago but mechanic couldn't find gaskets to fix either leak.

To be clear, the oil light came on and the car died or did the oil light come on when the car died?

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
