2000 Dodge Stratus 4 cyl Automatic 136000 miles
The car ran out of gas (gauge is broken) added gas to it. It acted like it didn't want to start. Mechanic said to prime it and use a "starting" spray. Did that and it acted like it wanted to start but wouldn't catch. Checked the oil and that was low, added 4 quarts and now it is making the loudest knocking sound! It sounds like something is loose. It is the first time it has done this. It was running fine before it ran out of gas. I don't know what to do now. And it still won't start. There was some white smoke that came out of the tail pipe when I was trying to start it. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
have the same problem?
