Car started vibrating and smoking, at the same time the engine light was blinking and the oil light on. Pulled over and turned car off. Noticed a puddle of liquid under the car, it was oil. Car wouldn't start again. Any ideas what it could be?

Hi there. Typically, the engine vibration and shaking is a symptom of a reduction of oil. It’s possible that either an oil line or oiling component has broken, which creates a lack of lubrication and tends to cause serious engine damage; which is essentially metal to metal contact. The first thing you should do is to ensure you don’t attempt to start the engine again, until a professional mechanic completes a car is leaking oil inspection.
