I have a 2000 Lexus LS400. I was driving and the car overheated. I

continued to drive it while it was running hot until the car stopped on

its own. I had it towed to my house. Then hours later, I filled it up

with ant-freeze(it was empty) and tried to start it again. The car

sounds like it is turning over, but it will not start. I have gas in

it, and I checked the dipstick-it has oil in it and the oil is not

mixed with water/anti-freeze. What is the problem and solution?

Do you

Check the compression. Most probably you have blown the head gasket. It does not necessarily mean water has to get to the oil if the head gasket is blown.
