You have to be kidding....  First the engine temperature rises, carbonizing the existing oil, the added viscosity slows the flow of oil and the temperature begins to rise more rapidly.  Friction continuously increases, creating more heat which causes more overheating of the engine, and finally seizing or extreme wear of the metal components.  If it continues to run at all, it will be with loud knocking of worn-out bearings until total internal destruction.

Gee, would a dollars worth of oil prevent this - definitely, and a less than $20 oil change would keep it running for a long, long time....

Motor oil lubes the mechanical parts in your car, so that they can run smoothly in conjunction with each other. If you don't put oil in your car, then the engine can't operate smoothly, leaving dry metal to rub against each other, causing all kinds of problems, primarily extreme heat. So make sure you change that oil!

Can anyone answer Mark's question? Where does one put the oil in ones car?

The information isnt available in owners manuals; it's assumed. The question is valid.

The idiotic answer from "HELPYHELPERTON" is surely a reflection on himself.

There are varying degrees of answers to the question "what happens if you don't add oil to your car"

If it is a new car, they do not use oil and normal oil changes will be sufficient.

An older engine might use up a little oil as it runs and require "topping off".  This you will see by checking the oil level.

Failure to replace the oil will result in the oil level going down and eventual lack of lubricating fluid will do bad things to your engine.  Should it go this far, you most likely will be replacing the engine or entire car.

Good advice, check the oil level....

PUT OIL IN YOUR CAR! Have your oil changed frequently, I learned this first hand when my 2001 cavalier coughed, sputtered, knocked, and DIED! Don't worry, it got a proper burial and I'm taking care of my new car very well, but basically, the car engine over heats and it wears out the pistons, rod bearings... everything. SO CHANGE THAT OIL!

I have just had my friend service my car.  When the oil plug was removed for the oil change no oil came out!  We topped it up with Mobil 1 (not sand), lets hope I don't have a problem in the future!

I have a 1998 Buick Lesabre and little did i know the oil ran out and my engine died and my car came to a complete stop. After, I started the engine but it is making a bad clanking noise. Is this repairable? Will I have to buy a new engine? How much money will i have to spend on repairs?

I had no oil in my car (The Warning light that tells you this was broken.) What happens is as follows:

Car Stalls, Then won't start without 4000+ revs and the clutch half down, makes VERY Loud bang bang bang noise and won't go more than 20 miles per hour. Than a lovely man comes to see your car and says sorry engine dead - buy a new car.

No fun.
