Truck will not start help?!

Asked by May 24, 2017 at 05:29 PM about the 2002 Dodge Ram 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Description of Problem: While driving, the check guages light came on, and
the oil pressure guage dropped to zero. then it dinged again and the light
went away. So driving quarter of mile it dinged again with the check
guages, and oil pressure dropping to zero and the vehicle died. Pulled over
put it in park turned truck off, waited a minute and turned it back on. Ran
well for 10 mintues then did the whole process over again. Second time
though it would not start, all the lights come on when key is half way turned,
radio, ac, guages etc. but the motor will not kick over, it jsut clicks. Checked
the oil and it was empty, no metallic flakes or shiny substance on dip stick.
added 2 quarts of oil, tried to start again still will not start, help?!

    Down shifted and it accelerated then fell on face. Spray starter fluid in it wants to start. This happened after I avoided a car which ran a stop sign
