If the car is gone, the car is gone. The car would only be covered in BK if you still had it.

If you file Chapter 13 bankruptcy within 10 days of your car being repossessed, or in some states before it has been sold or auctioned, your creditor must return the vehicle to you.

I had filed for bankruptcy 2yrs ago and it was dismissed. I have a zero balance on a auto loan that shows on my credit report. Do I still have to make my car payments?

If you reaffirmed your car loan during your bankruptcy, you agreed to continue making the payments. If you included your car in the bankruptcy, then the loan was wiped clean, as it appears to have been according to your credit report. Your car should have been repossessed, but apparently wasn't. You should check with the lawyer who handled your bankruptcy, but my guess is that your car slipped through the cracks.

Can you still get a student loan if you are in default on another loan and you just filed bankruptcy?

No. and Yes. The default on your prior student loan must be addressed and the loan rehabilitated before you're eligible for more student loans. The bankruptcy would only affect you if you had a defaulted student loan that was written off in the bankruptcy. Otherwise, bankruptcy doesn't prohibit you from applying and received federal student loans. Student loans are NOT automatically written off in bankruptcy and take extra steps with the courts.
