if its also losing power up hills etc ... it could simply be the distributor points gap. Needs to be 0.016" (0.4mm). Unit probably needs a complete tuneup, new fuel filter and carburettor adjustment.

What happens if two motors are connected in series?

If one motor shuts down due to mechanical failure or if it is turned off, the other will continue running as the circuit is not broken. IN SERIES, if one of the motors breaks down, the circuit will be broken and neither motor will run. IN PARALLEL, if one motor shuts down due to mechanical failure or if it is turned off, the other will continue running as the circuit is not broken. The only consequence of having two motor in series is it will run faster than the other as the power will not be evenly distributed between both motors because the internal resistances will differ as a result of living in an imperfect world.

Need more info. What kind of car? What model? What year? How many miles? Most cars will run with no oil in the motor, Only for A short time, This will ALWAYS ruin motor, Oil level being full does not make the car have oil pressure, although the car will not have oil pressure without oil in the motor. Going by the info. given, The motor needs rebuilt, This may not be the case though. could simply have a bad sending unit or guage.

How do you trouble shoot a synchronous motor that shuts down on power factor within one minute?

Not sure why you are describing the shut down as being power factor related. If it shuts down after a short period I would expect that the motor has a thermal protection cutoff and the shut down is being caused by a bearing over heating.
