Hi there. Based on what you’ve described, it’s quite possible that you’ve either damaged the motor internally due to low oil levels, broken oil pump or lack of lubrication; or a major component such as a connecting rod has broken. It’s probably a good idea to have a professional mobile mechanic come to your location and complete a car is hard to start inspection; so they can pinpoint the source of this issue.
