Sounds like you should have checked the oil prior to using it. That said, if it abruptly shut down you may have seized it and only after cooling down would turn over again but the damage is done....

Does the engine crank? Oil lite will come on when the engine isn't running, simply because the pump isn't running. Which happened first? The lite, or the engine quitting?

Re: jd "316" low oil cut off now no start

Many of these engines use the same type of oil pressure switch, it's not an oil amount or "low oil" sensor... They measure pressure.

These simple switches won't cause the light to turn on until there is zero oil pressure. Zero oil pressure is a death sentence for an internal combustion engine.

Alot of oil pressure switches also cut power to the coil.
Safety feature. No pressure, no fire.

I would remove the switch and clean it with carb cleaner into the switches inlet port.
Reinstall and try again.

Re: jd "316" low oil cut off now no start

Did you check the oil level before or after adding any? How much is in it now?
Seems like a normal process, engine dies, then trouble lights are suppose to come on. Just like when you go to start the engine. Turn the key, warning lights come on, then crank it over, they go out when it starts.

I donít think this is related to the oil level.

Trouble with that theory is, at startup, the engine shouldn't fire until oil pressure comes up. Which isn't the case.....

I think he has some other issue in there.

Which engine in this 316? A Kohler or Onan?

I'm guessing onan, as I don't think the kohler had a pressurized oil system.

Well a tear down would tell about any damage. It could be that the oil pan is full of sludge and may be a fuzz ball on the oil pickup screen. Both of which can starve an engine of oil. Or the oil pump (which is two gears wore out or broke away from the timing gear on the crank.

Let's not have him tearing the engine down just yet... He hasn't been back to answer the "does it turn over and not fire, or not turn at all?" question.

True, so let's now wait to see if the OP comes back with any more info.
