    I had a bad oil leak around the oil sending unit. After repairing it, I took my car to a car wash and tried to clean off the oil from the engine. Shortly afterwards (10 minutes), my car began to accelerate slowly and even cut off in traffic. Could this be my ignition coil?

Anti theft wont let me start car

I would treat it as a general no start condition. It could be fuel or ignition. The anti-theft system would prevent it from starting but not kill the engine once it has started.
Check the fuel pressure with a gauge and watch the spark at the plugs.

Engine runs great, everything seems to work but since buying it yesterdday it has just died going down the road 3 different times, then sometimes starts right up and other times it needs to sit a minute...

hi if the check engine light comes on i would start by changing fuel filter or fuel pump, however sometimes sensors dont trigger the check engine light and if it doesnt come on i would pull out the cam and crank sensors and clean them as they maybe dirty and causing the spark to die randomly

Start it up then you can drive maybe ten minutes then it dies or if you turn car off you cannot get it started again it sounds as if it will turn over when starting but it wont it also sounds like it will...

well you could start with the wires because cut wires are never good but it also sounds ike a fuel pump they can heat up and shut off and they have to cool back down befor they start again unless it felt like dieing. when this happens again chck on your fuel rail you will see a valve like on your rim to fill up your tire push in the pin and if it squirts fuel out then your pump stoped working. be carefull and wear safty glasses
