There is a trouble code set in the pcm( power control module). To be able to get the code and understand what is going on you need to take the car to a parts place like auto zone to have the pcm scaned for that code. They will scan it free and then you will know what the pcm is trying to tell you. Hope this will help.

1998 Lincoln Mark VIII sometimes stalls when idling in gear

Do you have a "Check Engine" light?

Check the coils in each cylinder. At 140k the valve cover gaskets tend to break and oil will fill the coils causing misfires and stalling.

Engine light has been on for a few days, car runs ok but is having a higher pitch while idle

You really should not be running your car with an engine warning light on: there are a few condition that will trigger this alarm but if your engine is running hotter than usual, I would check your engine oil level and oil pressure ... hopefully the high pitch does not come from your bearings running dry. In any case, please get your mechanic to check your car to find the root cause of the engine light being on ... could just be a warning to indicate that a car service is now due! Hope it helps!

My cars engine, battery, and oil lights are on. HELP!

well when the car shuts off or stalls your check engine , oil . battery lights are all going to come on the oil light is telling you there is no oil pressure due to the car not running the battery light is going to come on due to the alternator not pushing any juice because the car is not running and the check engine light also now. check under the car and make sure that your moter did not cut,rip or fray any wires comming from the starter area. this could be a big problem and make lights flicker and the car to run funny.

97 Honda Civic shakes at start and check eng light comes on.

It looks like misfiring in one cylinder. That is why check engine come on. Misfiring can be due to spark plugs/wiring/worn distributor cap. Maybe also vaccum leak and clogged injectors (use injector cleaner).
You can read the trouble codes at Autozone store for free
Please kindly let me know if this infor was usefull for you or you need more infro
Good Luck

My MINI '03 is screwed up

have you checked transmission oil?
I am not familar with MINI's but it sounds like either your transmission oil is low or is too thick (cold weather could do that) that the computer is safe gaurding you for destroying your transmission or you computers messed up.

Recommendation: get the car to a shop ASAP before you do serious damage.

Stalling at idle

Bought a use 03 last week for very cheep because it was idling rough, read in a forum about focus vacuum leaks and to use small burst of starting fluid to find the leak, spray around engine, if you hear the engine level off and run smooth in a particular spot for a few seconds the leak is in that general area, check the hose in that area, i found a large elbow on my pvc valve line was cracked in half, repaired with copper plumbing elbow fitting and silicone. now runs perfect. be very careful with the starting fluid short burst in well ventilated are.
