CAR WON'T START?

I have a 1999 Ford Contour and the oil light came on, then the car cut off. I added 2 quarts of oil. I then tried to crank the car and it sounds like it wants to turn over, but it doesn't. What could this mean?

Do you
have the same problem?

MOST OWNERS MANUALS SUGGEST PULLING MR. DIPSTICK WEEKLY

IF YOUR ENGINE MOVED VERY LONG WITHOUT LUBRICATION

IT MAY NOT BE A HAPPY ENDING

YOU MIGHT TRY TURNING YOUR CRANKSHAFT BY HAND, TO SEE IF IT IS SEIZED. YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO MAKE A REVOLUTION WITH A WRENCH KINDA EZ. IF IT IS NOT

SORRY!

LET ME KNOW YOUR RESULTS
