After my car battery needed a jump after leaving the light on a stranger offered to jump my car and help me out. Instead of jumping the car he crossed the negative and positive and caused the battery to spark up for approx 1 minute and killed the battery. After replacing the dead battery to a new battery my car began stalling and would not accelerate when I would push the gas pedal for several seconds afterwards. About two days later the car stalled and wouldn't start and I had it towed to firestone. They diagnosed the car needed the motor replaced due to a broke o ring and the oil leaking in the engine? Using my car insurance owing 11,000 on the car I reported the vandalism of the car battery exploding causing the car to start stalling is a problem to Geico. Unfortunately they havent been able to approve to coverage yet because the mechanic is not able to find the reason for the battery explosion the cause the mechanical failure. I know that that the problem is rooted after the vandalism bc of the stalling and the engine light never being a problem before so. They reported that the dipstick had oil burnt on it and couldnt give an accurate reading but caused by poor maintenance and running out of oil. BULLSHIT! Excuse my language. Any help trying to explain how the car battery explosion caused the motor to seize and the oil leaking would be sooooo appreciated. THANK YOU!
