Why is there oil in my radiator?

Possible head gasket but it would still run but overheat lots of smoke from exhaust or you have a leak from transmission or oil lines in radiator. If too much sludge is running in your engine jackets, may be seizing engine. Those are worse case scenarios. But always start with obvious protocol why it is not starting. Spark, charge, fuel, oxygen. You may have a simple fix with old contaminated antifreeze. Antifreeze needs to be replaced every two years.

Have a 1991 bonneville le has to sit for a few hours before it will restart

You may need to check fuel pressure after the engine warms up and shuts off. Maybe the fuel pump gets hot and stops. Have you checked for spark after it dies?

I have a 1994 toyota camry and while driving the engine dies off,then after i stop a few minutes later it starts then i can drive off again

It does sound like fuel pressure is low or intermittent. Here are some check procedures p172 on

Is the check engine light showing a trouble code on the instrument panel? That may pin the trouble down.

I have a 1994 buick skylark with 2.3 and a/t it runs and drives great except when slowing from high speeds it dies when approaching a stop. it jerks like transmission isn't shifting. when u restart it,...

Check for vacuum leaks on all hoses underhood. Make sure all intake componets are intact and they are tight.

Is the check engine light on? If so, get to an auto parts store, they should pull the codes for free.

Sounds almost like a bad throttle position sensor. The computer uses the TPS to help know when to shift on this car if I remember right, and if the TPS is bad, it can cause that jerking. Along with the car dying when slowing down after driving. But check everything else out first. Including electrical connections.

Car dies for no reason

I have a 1994 Bonneville and it to had trouble with it quiting while driving at low speed or slowing down and after doing a ton or resurch it turned out to be the EGR valve and it is a very common thing for the 3800 3.8. is expensive to replace and all the salvage yards that I went to did not have any on the motor so I had to buy one new $105 but in the end it was worth it. Until I could come up with the money I just took it off and sprayed carb cleaner in it and it would last a few weeks until it started to act up again. hope this helps every one.
