If it isn't a bad oil pump it might be a blockage.

If the area under the carpet doesn't have an access panel, you can use a dremel moto tool with the small grinding wheel attachment to cut one out. I believe the cut goes inside the middle humps. (You can see humps running down the trunk area.) Do a web search for the exact location. After you do this you will have to put in a metal plate to cover it. What i do is i cut out 3 sides and not the 4th, then i bend it up and over, then bend it back.

It sounds like you may have burned out your fusable link. It's a special wire that comes off the starter solennoid and is designed to burn off in the event of an overload. DO NOT REPLACE IT WITH REGULAR WIRE, THIS IS A LEADING CAUSE OF CAR FIRES.
You will want to check for what caused the overload condition that caused the fusable link to burn out in the first place.

1996 Pontiac Trans Am 5.7 L LT1, The motor temperature gauge goes to zero, intermittently Is there 2 sensor, one for the radiator fan and one for the dash gauge, or is it the same sensor?

This usually happens when the gauge on the dash goes bad. It can be the sensor for the water temperature too mounted on the engine. The sensor for the fans will have nothing to do with the gauge

The computer shuts off the spark to protect the engine. The car is doing exactly what it is supposed to do. Check the components in the cooling system like the thermostat, radiator cap, hoses etc...

I have a 1994 firebird Lt1 i was driving down the road and all my gauges stated jumding and the cheak gauges light came on and the car got quiet i lost power the dash went dark and want start does anyone...

either your altenator went, or you have loose battery cable/connection or lastly, possibly voltage regulator is out. Start car, remove battery cable. car should still run with cable disconnected. If altenator is good. Please let me know if you have any more questions.
