Question about Cars & Trucks
Could be that fuel you just got
Posted on Nov 27, 2014
The fact of you getting gas, probably, doesn't have anything to do with it, that is unless, the gas had an extremely high ethanol content and caused your engine to super heat, of course this is highly unlikely. Most cars have sensors to monitor coolant flow, oil pressure and temperature, if one of those has become defective, then a safety feature to save the engine might be kicking in to shut off the motor. before severe damage is done. That is the problem with sensors very often one does not know if there is an actual problem, or the sensor itself. Question: Is your service engine light on? If so then check for codes. Many parts stores (e.g. Auto Zone) will check for codes for free.

Testimonial: "When it happened the cel came on with oil. When I restarted car, all was off & looked & sounded normal. I drove 1/2-1 football field in length & it happened again. Again started rt back up. I parked and am waiting a tow. I'm too far from home to risk driving and engine shutting down as I must get on freeway."

SOURCE: Oil pressure light is blinking.
It's very possible a coincidence and that the flashing oil light is the oil pressure switch. I'd check it out immediately to make sure there's sufficient oil flowing through the engine. Merely jump starting the car shouldn't have knocked anything loose so to be on the safe side, assume there's an oil pressure issue. You were right to not use the car in the interim.
