My car started slowing down and shutting off, more like it was not circulating gas or oil. I knew my oil was low, but all other fluids are full and has about 4 or 5 gallons of gas still in tank. i have replenished the oil needed for car to run, but won't start.I have tried so much to start it that the battery has begun dying.

    it's hard to guess but start checking your fuel pump and fuel pressure, check if you have spark and do compression test, check your caps, rotor,wires and spark plugs maybe bad.

    Is the timing belt stripped or broken? If you turn the key on and watch the 'check engine' light , at the same time as the light goes off , do you hear a light click from under the dash? Try several times to be sure (don't crank-only turn on key to where warning lights come on).

    OK. Going back to your original description of symptoms , have the plugs been pulled and inspected for fouling or signs of other internal engine problems? That might be a good starting point, and back to basics as eban777 described. The check engine light and 'click thing I mentioned is just an easy way to see if the 'main' relay is working. You didn't mention if you heard the 'click'./////////////////////\\\\\\\\\\\\ The other thing........ What part of the car was affected by the accident and was it repaired at a body shop? Maybe related.
