Oil light came on while going up a hill, car accelerated on its own to 4000 RPM's and then died. Checked the oil and it was pretty much dry. Put oil and anti-freeze in the car, and it wouldn't start. We even tried to jump it (because it seemed like it was the battery being low) and it still wouldn't start. I don't know what the problem could be. There is a tiny bit of anti-freeze where the rear main seal is on the head. It acts like it wants to turn over. You can hear the starter and fuel pump kick on when the key is turned into the "ON" position. But then it just clicks and the battery acts like its half dead.
