help my 2 year old killed my truck

This is what happened, do I'm still fuming. I was under my truck 99 f250 4x4 7.3 auto, had all the oil drained out and filter off. Then my two year old grabbed my keys off the ground and hit my auto start. Truck starts I sprint grab the keys and immediately shut the truck off, but not before it stalled on -its own. I finish changing the oil, motorcraft filter and 5w40 rotella T synthetic. Now the truck wont start at all I'm letting it sit hoping it just flooded, but help!!!!!!!!

How long have you cranked it? It may need time to get oil back through the whole system.

Is the Service Engine light on?

You did not damage anything don't worry.

Fill the HPOP resevoir and you'll have to crank on it some to get it restarted. You'll be fine. The HEUI injection system stops firing the injectors before the crankcase oil gets low enough to kill the bearings.

One of it's biggest failsafes but also it's biggest down side to making power

yea everything was ok, I had to crank it for like two minutes, but finally it started. drove it out to dinner with the family and home. Cranked a little more than usual the first couple times starting, but now its back to normal. Good thing is it feels like it has more power now, the oil was nasty black from the previous owner. So anyone have any opinions of the 5w40 synthetic and tomorrow I tackle the fuel filters.

Thats why when I install remote start systems I ALWAYS install the hood switch that comes with them. Hood open=No start period
Whoever put that system was an idiot for not installing all of the safety devices.
Get a hood switch and wire it in before somebody gets hurt.
