I was driving not even 10 minutes up the road to get some ice cream(pregnant cravings), it's late, midnight almost. & I've had this van for about 2 1/2 months. But don't drive it often. Just to doctors appointments. this is the first time anything like this had happened. We was driving & immediately not even three houses down from our house we hear this ticking sound. I just turned on the heater, & we know nothing about cars so I thought maybe that's what it was being I haven't used the heater at all. Well anyways, I finally get on the main strip, almost to my destination & my oil light pops on & my car immediately dies. Doesn't sputter or anything. Just dies. My husband starts it back up, & we decide to head to Walmart to get oil (obviously) & right before we made it there it dies out again & this time won't even start back up. The lights won't even come on. At this point I'm freaking out. It's late & I'm in a town I just moved too & don't even know who to call. This nice man tried to help us out, by jumping it & was gonna follow us home if we could start it. But it wouldn't even start. The lights came in while the power source was connected but wouldn't start. But once you disconnect it goes out again. He had some oil in his car the 5 quart tub. We put half of it in there & just let it sit over night. I'm about to go back up there & see if it will do anything. What could this possibly be? Does it maybe have a sensor? Thank you in advance, we know absolutely nothing about cars!

Is there a 2nd port? Or a damper? Help!

My airbags were deployed due to an MINOR accident which I still don't understand why both driver and passenger airbags. It wasn't a head on accident. Nevertheless,I replaced the airbags expecting everything to be fine, but the airbag readiness on the instrument panel keeps flashing. Do I need to replace the Unit, Airbag sensor? Or can it be reset?

93,000 miles; trnasmission hissing lately but mostly when cold. Recently ck engine light came on. Was still driving with no issues. Today, light still on, as I pressed the brakes to come to a stop, they went fully to the floor, and car did not stop. They worked very poorly the rest of the drive(I was one block away). I continued to pull in and ut of driveway to test, and the brakes barely work at this point. Any ideas? Concerned as it followed a few days after the ck engine light

When the RPMs are decelerating I'm getting the whooping noise from the air cleaner.

This started w/just a flicker of oil light at idle then it would stay on till 900, now it stay's thru 1600. No knocking so far. I had the oil pan removed and cleaned the oil pump suction screen

the struts didn't make any noise for a couple days after I replaced them
