I checked the oil and it is at the add oil line. But I just got oil put in about 3wks ago. Should the oil run out that fast!Today went out to start it up, it didn't even try to turn over. The more I tried to turn it over the less juice I got. Thanks for your response.

So its not turning
did you try to get a jump?
Try to turn the engine manually
get a wrench and a socket to fit on the crank shaft bolt and try to turn it by hand
if it does then the motor isn t seized
and you have to check starter and battery
