MODELS OIL LIGHT

1997 Plymouth Other

Electrical problem
1997 Other Plymouth Models Two Wheel Drive Automatic 125000 miles

Where I live it has been very cold the past week and on a Tuesday I drove my car and it was fine I didnt drive it the rest of the week and when I went to start it on Friday, it turned on for like five minutes then died. My oil light came on but no other lights would turn on. It tries to turn over but doesnt start. I stuck 2 quarts of oil in and put dry gas in the gas tank to help it if it was a frozen line. I have no idea what it could be any ideas?

Do below and determine if its fuel or spark and get back

Get a starting fluid or ether and spray into the carb or the throttle body on an EFI. Did it start and die? If not disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine -have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors- Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it
