The car shuts off while driving. I replaced the starter, alternator, and battery car started but as I was driving the car shut off. Checked oil no oil in car put two quarts in let it sit for 10 minutes tried to start car still wouldn't start. Got a jump car started up drove car shortly car shut off again while driving again.

Based on this info I am thinking we have a larger engine issue because if you have no oil and the engine shuts off, that is normally due to the engine locking up.

However, if it continues to turn over and even start after the battery was jump started then the engine is not locked up yet.

When the engine was started and running was it making any noise?

If it made any knocking noise, then that is going to be conclusive as to what the issue is.

If not, then we need to start with two things.

First, we need to check for codes.

Next, we need to drain the oil and look for metal in it.

If there is metal, then that will be from the bearings and confirm what is happening.

Hopefully all this checks out and we just have a drained battery but based on this info, we need to rule this out first.

Thanks
