Dies while driving no sputter
I have a 2009 Outlook XE with 126k miles. It was the previous owners 2nd car. So, it wasn't driven all too often. She was original owner. No major problems while previous owner had car. I got it for a song because 1.Car would die while driving down road at 65 mph with no sputter no sign what so ever. Check engine and some dash lights remain on. But, nothing to be heard from anywhere on vehicle. 2.A mobile mechanic that is a neighbor told her that due to there being oil in the throttle body that it had blown head gaskets and that was the entire problem. My husband is a diesel tech of 8 years and works on gas a lot of the time as well so he knows his stuff. We bought the car and it actually started and we were able to move it a block or so and were backing it into the driveway and it died again. Wouldn't start back up so we had to push it. I need help or anyone out there that may have run into the same problem(s) that can maybe give me some advice and help me in the right direction. Or my husband thinks its the PCV Positive control valve not opening up. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
