Charger no start

07 charger was running then wont start no anti freeze

Too bad. If you like to ask a question we need a lot more information.

Remove the oil dip stick and check the color and the level of the oil.

If the oil looks like this and above the full mark, there’s an internal coolant leak in the engine.

And if that’s the case, some of the cylinders may be filled with coolant, causing hydro-lock which is why the engine won’t start.

Usually, when an engine is resistant to starting it is a fairly simple issue of determining whether it is the result of a fuel issue or an electrical (spark) issue. When it is coupled with a loss of all of the coolant, that suggests that it is an expensive problem.

Tester’s post gives you some very good ideas.
Please post back with what you find.
