9.3 is a really dead battery - replace it and check the alternator. I have seen them go bad with no dash indication. As to the oil being black, you may have worn piston rings, and probably need an engine re-build. Worn rings allow the exhaust of the engine contaminate the oil - you should also see increased oil consumption due to the vapors exiting via the PCV valve and being burned in the engine.

My car starts but does not stay running

So many possibilities. It could be a fuel problem if it splutters then dies. If it cuts out straight away (no spluttering) would indicate an ignition type problem.

Impreza 1.6RX is choking and spluttering, changed exhaust, coil fuel filter and air filter, runs ok for a little while, then splutters and chokes again,

When you say changed the exhaust, did you change the catalytic converter also? This sounds like your problem.

S type year 03 car gave a couple of splutters going round a roundabout the engine warning light came on and the words restricted performance appeared . i drove the car home about 6 miles and it seems ok ,...

Get the codes read as it could be anything. The car will run with this warning up until the fault goes to the next level - then it will shut you down. Get the codes read as it may be something small like a sensor or even a bad connection - from the ''splutters'' it sounds like it may be fuel/air based. hope this helps-good luck.
