You need to remember that the engine I gave you a link to does not contain bolt on parts, alternator, water pump, ect. It does appear to come with head. I can look deaper online for more options for you in a few. If the engine held 5 quarts, then it was bone dry. While you may find that anouther problem caused it to die, no oil is not good. Oil is the life line of the engine. You can try to turn the engine by the crankshaft with a large socket and breaker bar at the pully bolt. As far as fixing the oil leak, fuel pump and/or whatever the main issues are. You still have an engine that has been through a lot. Even just a few minutes of no oil can be drastic. While some engine can hadle unbelieveable abuse, most cannot. This is not a brand thing, it just is what it is. The real question is "is the gallant paid off" if it is you can possibly get something for it on a trade in even if it has to be towed in. Eveyone wants to sell a car right now and it is becomine a buyer's market. I even hear it is very easy to get Haundai finansing, and they could be offering a LIFETIME warrenty. LIFETIME! If you choose to fix this car by rebuild or replacement of engine then we will try to help. This make and model is not my expertise, nor is blown/near-blown motors. What do you think is best for you?
