Millionaire right with idle but you gotta do your tune ups
oxgen sensor too will make your vehicle rough idle

on the throttle body there should be screw to adjust idle
or computer idled but
mostly idle will be controlled behind the gas petal by an adjustment bolt easy to fix just have to lay on back to see and get to it inside vehicle

My car tried to shut off going down the highway. Then it was shaking mildly. engine light came on flashing.This is a 1999 Dodge Stratus- 4cyl.-2.7 engine

The flashing engine light means the miss is bad enough to cause damage to the catalytic converter. The check engine light does not involve engine oil.
Are you saying the timing belt is not turning the cam ?

1991 Chevy Caprice has a mild miss fire and stall at low rpm: This is my latest update: I checked and cleaned the EGR,PCV,IAC valve, M.A.P sensor and Throttle body(bore/butterfly). with carb cleaner....

Do you have the idle speed turned up to keep it from dying? Because it is high. Check engine light on? Have you checked for vacuum leaks at the gasket under the throttle body? How does the car run under acceleration? You might have a worn distributor shaft.

Not sure what is causing it, but it sounds like you're running on 3 cyllinders. Check plugs, wires, timing . timing belt may have jumped, bad injector, low fuel pressure.

Adjusting my idle

To itsgr:
What make, model, year is your car? What engine? How many miles?

To deb:
The location you describe may be where the "knock" sensor normally would go. If it is no longer there, it will set a code and turn on the MIL (check engine light). A cheap fix would be to find out for sure what went there, and if it is the knock sensor, find one at a salvage yard, plug it in, and tie it up out of the way so it doesn't move around.
