My car started this morning and started to make a low squealing sound and shut off. It does need an oil change but there is oil in it. Also when I try to restart it, it just makes a clicking sound and the engine will not turn over. Can you give me an idea of what the problem could be?

The squealing noise could indicate one of the components linked to the drive belts is seized and this would prevent you from cranking the engine.

Ensure the battery is good. Loosen the drivebelts and retest if you are able to crank.
