2003 Dodge Stratus Question: Engine Failure

 

Question

I was driving along, when I came down hard on a hump. At first there were no signs of a problem. Then as I approached my house, I heard a funny noise. All of a sudden the car started to slow down, and then it came to a stop. It would not start back up. It is still not working, and my Brother-n-Law said that it was only about a quart low in oil. But I had just had my oil changed a couple of weeks before. Do you think some damage was done?

    Hard to answer with out looking at damage. Possible that the engine oil pan was damaged, pushing the oil pickup to a point where it is sucking up air. Here is a directory to shops in your area. https://repairpal.com/directory?address=75180&car_brand_names=Dodge
