How often do check your engine oil level? If you let it run out of oil, you may have ruined the engine? If the starter motor can crank the engine, at least the engine isn't seized. If the cranking rpms are a lot faster than normal, there may not be any compression.

You mentioned your radiator, is all your coolant gone?
