2003 Ford Escape XLT 6 Cyl 3.00L


Engine cranks but won't start

My truck, 2003 Ford Escape XLT v6 was running good for the longest time, back in January the check engine light came on, I took it to advance and they ran diagnostic test , said bad catalic converter at bank 2 on passenger side, guy took the check engine light off so I could pass emissions, drove it around for the rest of January and February,. March 12th I took it to emissions and it passed, on the 14th I got locked up, so during my wonderful stay in jail I had my fiance move my truck so it wouldn't get towed, and then would have her move it from time to time to here or there, just to keep the fluids going and engine running. Eventually my cousin came and got my truck and when she did it wouldn't start, she claims there was NO oil in it but I find that hard to believe but anyways, she added some oil to it I think a quart or 2 just to make it to her house and got it started by jumping it. She got half way to her house and pulled over cause truck was riding rough, it didn't over heat or

If the engine was operated with little to no oil, then most likely major engine bearing damage has occurred. Time for a new or different engine.
