I was driving up the hill and I noticed my car was driving funny. The oil and battery light came on then the car cut off. I checked the fluids oil was at low mark, had enough Trans fluid but I did notice oil in first cylinder only and on the top that I can wipe off. CN someone help me with this problem and is it major?

The oil where the wires go is a bad valve cover gasket
As far as the no start do you have a crank no start or no crank no start?
