If this is a 4 cylinder, my guess is that due to the low oil levels, you have a stretched timing chain. The timing chain auto-tensioner relies on oil pressure to keep proper tension. The Check Engine Light will most likely be lit and a trouble code of P0341 probably stored. One thing leads to another.

Need engine codes stall could be for several reasons, do you hear the fuel pump running when you turn the key to the ON position?

you will have to open the tank via the gas cap and listen to it running after the engine stalls.. if it stalls and the pump is not running, you know what is up.


I had this happen to a 86 sable it would intermittently stall and then one day it just ran and shut right off after a few monets.
