1998 Toyota Camry Repair Question
Toyota Camry Engine Problem
The car would not start again. I popped the hood to see if their was a hose biated or something visibly wrong. I then checked the oil. The oil was so low it barely registered on the dipschtick.i checked the oil about two weeks ago and it was clean but a quart low so i added a quart. A friend told me it probably needed water so it ate up the oil and my motor became too hot and locked up. Is my motor fried? Is their anyway to unlock the motor?
when you say it would not start, did it turnover(crank) or just ckick. have you manually tried to turn crankshaft? if locked, find the tight bearing and fix it.

No it wouldnt crank. It just clicked. Also when i looked under the hood the engine was so hot it was glowing red. Is my motor toast?

High possibility the engine has overheated badly and is seized. When engine cools down you might be able to crank it but it most probably won't start.
The part glowing red hot should be the catalytic converter and it would occur thus if the gnie was misfiring badly prior to stalling.
