Make sure that you don’t have lots of gas in your oil (i.e. way over full on the dipstick or oil smells a lot like gas). If not, drive it a while and see if it clears up. If so, change oil and drive it a while.

No I haven’t. I don’t know much at all about cars and I’m learning as I’m going. So basically what you are saying is it’s probably burning oil off the injectors, right?
No you Have Excess gas in your crankcase as you crank it it pulses the injectors and if it’s not firing your flooding the motor when it comes up on the compression stroke it forces gas pass the rings into the crank case and dilutes your oil check your oil and see if it’s over full or if it smells like gas

If it had no spark the injectors won't fire. They are batch fire triggered from the ignition. Change the oil anyway. That is always money well spent.

Did it smoke before it died?
Trans fluid burns white. So does antifreeze.

Check the vacuum line from the trans modulator to the motor. It's on the passenger side of the car sticking out from the trans. Should be a little piece of rubber with a metal line that goes to the motor. Disconnect it (the rubber line) at the trans and see if it has any oil in it.
If so your modulator is bad. It helps control shifting. If not check the radiator and see if it is full. If not and assuming it was before this do a compression check.
