I bought a 93 celica with what I thought was a slow oil leak, Turns out it wasn't so slow. I stopped my car, reversed and put it in drive. I got about 3 feet before it sputtered out and died. Turns out it had no oil. I put a few quarts in it and it turns over but wont start. What should I check? Is there anything that can be done?

Do you

Maybe not. You may have damaged the motor.

Start with a compression test, fuel pressure and spark tests.
