21 yo idiot son had the car towed home, no oil in car and no gas. Put in 4 quarts and a gallon of gas, engine turns over yet will not start. I checked and it is getting gas and spark, spark plugs were in good condition no oil, erosion or burning. Checked the water and it was dark brown and felt oily or slippery, I have a strong suspicion this is either oil or gas. I haven't checked the compression on the cylinders yet but what will that tell me?
