There are a few thing that can cause this type of problem, A weak fuel pump is the most common, not enough fuel pressure . the pump puts out just enough to start and idle but when gas is applied it sputters and pops and stalls out. I would start with having the fuel pressure tested, a fuel pressure gauge will be needed to perform this test. you may be able to rent one from auto parts store, you will connect at the injector rail, there will be a valve , like the tire air valve. screw end of gauge to valve and start engine and see what the pressure is. the pressure needs to be at 38 psi, or test pressure without starting just turning key on and then pressure needs to be 47- 50 psi.
If the pressure is lower than the specs then pump is bad.. the other problems could be a bad tps sensor or mass air flow sensor, but from the way you listed what the problem is doing i would have to say start with the fuel pump testing first,
If oil level in engine is at proper level, I wouild suspect oil pressure sending unit, does vehicle have an oil psi gauge on dash,,,if so what does it read. if oil psi reads well then it may be an oil level sensor. if you have access to a manual oil pressure gauge, you can remove the oil psi sensor and install manual gauge to get a true reading of what oil pressure is while running. if manual gauges shows low psi, then you may be looking at an oil pump.
First off I wouldnt drive your car until you make sure that you have indeed oil pressure and that the gauge is a false reading, driving your car if in fact it has no oil pressure will severly damage your engine, but firstly i would check the oil pressure switch its located on the passenger side of the engine right back from the oil filter make sure the connector is clean and free from oil and corrosion if the connector appears to be in good shape take a paper clip and insert it between the 2 terminals inside the connector your oil pressure gauge should peak at 80 PSI that tells you that your gauge and all related wiring are good and in working condition, secondly remove the oil pressure switch and hook an manual oil pressure gauge up to you engine and start the engine the guage should have a oil pressure reading anywhere from 30 PSI to 55PSI depending on engine temperature if theres oil pressure on your manual gauge replace the oil pressure switch with a new unit, if you still have 0 PSI on your gauge then stop your engine immediatly and start looking at your oil pump and lubricating system for a problem.
It is not the fuse. I had the same problem for months. Sometimes, depending on the temperature the overhead temp guage would work then it would not. I thought it was a loose connection but that was not it at all. I checked on the internet and found a ton of people with the same issue. It is caused by loose connections on the "510" resistors. My solder connections looked good but I resoldered and it works like a charm.

hi my name is paul
these days most cars have a expansion tank under the bonnet or hood
this is were you fill it up with water it looks like a plastic bowl with a screw lid
DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES UNDO CAP WHEN ENGINE IS RUNNING OR IS STILL HOT *** DANGER OF SCALDING DO NOT OVERFILL CHECK OUT MAX LEVEL
car manufacturers use expansion tanks because as the water in your engine warms up it expands under high pressure and fills up the expansion tank with excess water when the engine cools down the water cools and it shrinks and goes back into the cooling system hope this information has been usefull
