    Will the engine crank normally and not start or will it not crank normally when you hit the starter? If the engine cranks normally, that's a good sign. If the engine won't crank, that's a bad sign. If you ran out of oil, the engine may be ruined.

    if it will crank but not turn over then try lookingin you relay box for a relay labeld asd. that stands for automatic shutdown relay.its very common that those go bad.
