I need different information to help you. I need you to plug in a code reader and read fault codes. You will have to borrow or buy a code reader. Amazon has then for $19.95 and up and they work fine. Ok, how much oil was u=in the throttle body? like just a little puddling toward the bottom of the opening? Just wipe it out with a rag, not that odd to see that if the system has not been opened in a long while and cleaned. Your engine stalled for one of several possible reasons. Either the crank sensor went bad, the ignition control module went bad or some other less common cause. I will assume that the engine does rotate when you turn the key? The starter is functioning? Or did you mean to say that the engine seems locked up? Make me feel like I am there. Give me more detail. What happens when you try to sr=tart it?
