Question about Cars & Trucks
Could be something that when warmed up is fine , i'd check the engine oil level and the autobox fluid level (i presume its auto trans ).if these are ok perhaps you could leave the vehicle with the mechanic overnight so that he can start vehicle from 'cold' ,this is a recognised procedurer with this type of fault , suggest having tha OBD codes read as well as could pinpoint faulty sensor/switch but i'm sure your mechanic would have this in mind to do anyway, keep me posted if you wish

SOURCE: Ran out of oil while driving-
No not siezed, if it was siezed it would not turn over.
You have "Trown a Rod" or "Spun a Rod Bearing"
The more you let it run the more damage will be done to the engine block. It may still be possible to rebuild but start it again until it is diagnosed.

First, I hope you diluted the battery acid with a little water. Most batteries create explosvie gas (hydrogen). If it isn't vented well, the gas could build up and a spark from even a dirty terminal can set off the gas. Are you saying that you've determined that Chevy Equinox cars are prone to explode their batteries? A sealed battery, such as the Optima, releases no vapors. Such a battery would probably solve your problem.

SOURCE: I have a punto 55 M reg
ley's do some diagnostics first. Let's see if the oil leak is addecting the engine performance an verify the oil is coming from the head..
check the valve cover gasket first..If there is oil all around the head, then its more likely the gvalve cover gasket. Good Luck

If your car dies suddenly and otherwise runs fine, the root of the problem is an electrical problem or electronics/computer related. Even though it could be a fuel shut off that caused the car to stop. The "brain" controls ignition and fuel thus my assessment. Have the codes read to see if a problem is indicated with the computer or sensors. Since it is an intermittant problem, it is possible your code reads will still be normal. Check all connections if you don't get a coded problem. Good Luck!
