Sounds like a possible timing belt failure. I recommend finding a trusted repair shop to accurately diagnose the problem. These cars are known for oil leaks. Low oil leavels while driving can sieze the camshaft in the cylinder head breaking the timing belt. Lots of things can cause a dying problem while driving.
