1995 Oldsmobile Aurora will start sometimes and other times it won't, I replaced the starter and still the same.

If the engine cranks but won't start, the battery and starter are out of the picture.
When it won't start, someone will need to check fuel pressure and for spark at the plugs to proceed.

Trouble starting up my 2001 Aurora and if you put any gas to it it dies once running it seems to be ok. however it has died at times

Claen mass air flow sensor with a non-chlronated brake cleaner if that does'nt help check the fuel pressure if not within specs replace pump.

Car dying while driving, DIC readouts incorrect

Start out by checking the connections on your battery and the connection next to the fuse block under the hood.
It is possible that this is a bad ignition switch, however if that were the case you would not see the DIC setting reset. DIC setting reset is indicative of a total power loss.

1979 Firebird Esprit hard to start and keep running, dies in gear

it sounds like timing to me if it dies when you put it in can idle fine but when you put it in gear and it dies then you have timing problems
