Q: How can I get my truck to start??

asked by on

I was driving on the freeway, my check engine light popped on. So I pulled over and my oil light popped on. I checked the dipstick And saw I was very low so I added a few quarts of oil. Now it almost turns over but doesn't wanna start.

My car has 150000 miles.

Hi there. The check engine coming light on leads me to believe the ECM (engine control module)/computer has recognized the fault. Accessing the ECM for codes may help identify what component may have failed. The no start could be the result of, a failed CKP (crankshaft position) sensor. Proper diagnoses should be performed to avoid unnecessary repairs. I recommend having your vehicle’s no start be diagnosed and repaired by a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic.
