check engine light is on. clicking sound (that is consistant with acceleration,low rpm idle, and when at a constant speed rpm's bounce. all of this afterafter oil was ran dry and when the car accelerated it died then would not start right away. it took 3 quarts of oil to fill back up
If you ever have an oil leak it really should be fixed right away unless this happened all at once. Go to a local mech or if there is an Autozone around go there and have them check the Engine Light code for you for free. You will have more info to work with.

It sounds like a failed 'idle air control.'
Your computer may be monitoring engine conditions so having it scanned at one of the chain auto parts stores may identify the problem.
The scanning is (in my experience) free of charge but call first to confirm this.
i think you have a vacumm leak po 170 is a lean code look for leaks also check and clean mass air flow sensor and you may have to take to dealer for that throttle screw that does not adjust the idle speed take carb cleaner and carfully spray around engine when running listen for change becareful around coils and exaust.
check engine light flashing usually means a misfire. i would have to to run a diagnostic check first. i would recommend getting it put on the computer at autozone (cause it's free) but i don't know for sure if they can run that year model. i know they run 96 and up. but you need to find out what cylinder is misfiring and i can almost bet you its a coil pack or injector. if autozone can't do it you'll have to call around to your local mechanic shops and find out who charges less to put it on a computer, usually $75 or more. i have one i would only charge you $50 but that doesn't do you any good lol.get back with me and let me know what you fid out.
