Run the fault codes . Check for idle speed sensor and MAF sensor. It should be idling around 900rpm and the oil light coming on ( assuming you have enough oil in the sump) will be because of the very low idle rpm not pumping enough oil to maintain pressure.

Cavalier sputters


Randomly shuts off? The only "shutdown" for a car is the security system. I do not believe you have a shutdown for low oil pressure. I have seen cars shut down due to the gas cap being loose. I think you have had bad oil, even if you changed it, it could have varnished the hydraulic lifters which will give you the sputtering. This may be remedied with an anti-gumming agent. I know that the Dodge Intrepid (not your car- read on) had a poor design where the engine would gum up. Dodge makes an additive specifically for the oil of this engine that removes the gunk. This is what I would try. Other backyard methods like using diesel fuel do work and I have used them, but I DO NOT recommend this for you. Over the counter stuff at the department store may work, but I know that the Dodge stuff worked very well.

it may be oil problems. Do you check the engine oil level regularly? And if you do, is the engine cool? And it shouldn't be black neither. If it's fine, check the transmission fluid, engine running after a few minutes. And then the coolant/ antifreeze.

Hesitating, has white smoke, and now sputtering


White smoke + engine not fully working = head gasket failure. Replace it.

Car hesitates and sputters


It seems like you have a vacuum leak in a hose some where. Check under the hood for any rubber hoses that are dry-rotted, cracks, or sharp bends in any of them.

Check engine light is on intermittenly during driving


Well to tell you the truth with so many sensors you need to put the car on a scanner to fix the problem.You dont want to be changing part after part and not fix it,can get expensive.Get it scanned pay 40 to 70 dllrs get a report and you can change the part.But open you hood and look around it can even be a vacum line.Good luck.I can guide you thru changing the part.
