I was on the freeway driving really fast had to take my baby daughter to the er was having trouble breathing. Then the car just turns off I didn't know it was off until I try to give it more gas then looked at my dash all the lights were on (check engine, oil, battery, etc.) No sound it turned off silently. I just changed my oil a couple of days before this happened still has oil in the engine . I replaced the battery and alternator a month ago.i tryed starting it nothing thought it was the starter but that's fine I tryed turning over the engine manually and it won't turn over. I thought it would be a seized engine but I have plenty of oil. Any ideas? I can try so I don't have to buy another engine. Thanks

I guess you got your daughter to the hospital.

Where is the car now?

So the engine does not crank. I am confused by the word "manually" in your description. How does that differ from how you ordinarily start? Have you tried putting the RAV4 into neutral and then try cranking?

I think you need to have a mechanic come to you or you need to get the car towed to a mechanic.

Way too little information here....no mention of year...motor....miles.....was this thing out of gas?....when you turn the key does the motor turn over but not start? Do you only get a clicking sound when turning the key to try and start it?.....when I turn a motor over by hand I put a socket on the crank pulley and use a ratchet to manually turn the motor...if it won't turn by hand that is a pretty good indicator of it being seized...
