I ran my 2003 Crown Victoria out of oil and after filling it back up with oil, it cranks but won't start. There is also a thumping noise in the rear of the vehicle when I try to start it
Do you

I would remove all the components to gain access to the camshaft and see if you worn out any of the camshaft lobes and check the lifters to make sure they aren't seized. Are you positive the engine is cranking? If you resolve this issue, please post the solution. Curious.

Checked for metal shavings in the oil pan? Changed the filter? When oil is dry, major damage occurs immediatly, A compression test will confirm the damage.
