Re: Problem Diagnose
Adding 3 qts means the level was too low. Thre quarts to the FULL mark means 3 qts leaked/burned out, one qt in the filter, the last qt distributed about the engine.
The clunking you heard, if a heavy sound as a sledge hammer hitting an anvil, would probably mean a rod is knocking due to lack of oil; if a light sound as in a tack hammer hitting the same anvil, empty hydraulic lifters, lots of valve adjustment, no oil inside the lifter. Some lifters may be permanently stuck.
To get the engine restarted, pull all the spark plugs, hold the throttle open, disable the ignition, and crank the engine over to allow the oil pump to pump up to the rocker arms, all of them. Once there is a good stream coming out, recharge the battery, install the plugs, enable the ignition, and attempt to start. You might need to spray alittle starting fluid into the intake to assist, alittle spray for about a second, no longer.
If a heavy knock is coming from the crankcase (oil pan), then you might consider a rod knocking. Time for a rebuild or exchange for a good used engine.
