To me it sounds like your power steering has failed, check the power steering pump to see if it has fluid and to the a/c and cd points to the battery has come loose.

Ratchet & Clank is a platforming and shooting video game for the PlayStation 2. Developed byInsomniac Games and published by Sony, it is the first game in the Ratchet & Clank series. It was released in North America on November 7, 2002 and in Europe the following day, with aJapan release early the following month. It follows the story of Ratchet and his robot companionClank as they traverse their fictional universe to defeat the villainous Drek. The game offers a wide range of weapons and gadgets that the player must use to defeat numerous enemies and solve puzzles on a variety of different planets. On planet Quartu, an assembly line is producing large, destructive robots when suddenly there is a quality control error, and a small, curious robot emerges from the facility. The robot encounters a video recording on an infobot. Horrified by its contents, the robot escapes the planet in a spaceship, only to be shot down over the planet Veldin.
On Veldin, Ratchet is constructing his own spaceship when the robot crash-lands near Ratchet's home. Ratchet is eager to leave Veldin in his ship, but can't without a vital component: a robotic ignition system. Ratchet recovers the robot from the wreckage, nicknaming him "Clank". Clank shows Ratchet the infobot, which contains a recording of Chairman Drek of the Blarg race. In the recording, Drek explains that his home planet has become so polluted that it is now uninhabitable. Drek's solution is to build a new planet for his race by extracting large parts of other planets, destroying them in the process. Fearing that Drek will destroy the galaxy, Clank asks Ratchet to help him find the famous superhero,Captain Qwark, in an effort to stop Drek. Equipped with the latest of robotic ignition systems, Clank agrees to start Ratchet's ship in return, and Ratchet agrees.
They crash-land on Planet Novalis in time to foil Drek's plans and find a new infobot and a better spacecraft. Heading to Planet Kerwan, the duo get a new Swingshot by completing an obstacle course, and get Clank upgraded by giving him a helipack upgrade which allows Clank to glide along with Ratchet.

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.

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at
