Sounds more like you may be too low on oil.... have the oil level checked and look for an oil leak, the oil should be changed every 3-4,000 miles and checked inbetween.

Did the oil light come on before the car stopped? If the oil light came on before it died, the engine was likely seized up due to low oil/pressure which destroys all the hearings in the engine resulting in the lock up you find with the flywheel won't turn

Have the engine checked for vacuum leaks, that will cause a high idle speed. As a 35 year veteran of auto repair I can tell you that engine flushs are a 100% waste of your hard earned money.

Check your alternator if you can get it to start and stay running. If not then you may want to consider taking it off the car and having a parts store bench test it. It's most likely that.

Revving engine


This is normally caused by a cracked head or failed injector seating washer allowing fuel into the sump. The oily fuel then keeps the engine running. Does the engine oil smell of diesel?

I have a 97 plymouth breeze 2.0 L V4. wont start


SOUNDS LIKE the engine siezed the oil light was an indicator there was no oil pressure with no oil pressure the engine would have been damaged severly use a 3/4" socket and ratchet on the crankshaft pulley and try and turn the engine over by hand it should turn freely and you should feel all 4 cylinders compression as the cylinder comes up on the compression stroke
