I have a 1998 88 olds that will crank up and run abt 5 minutes then cuts off and will not restart . The electric door locks will not work when this happens. After the car sits for abt 5 minutes more it...

Sounds like an intermittent in the ignition circuit, could be a faulty ignition switch. (not the lock cylinder, the actual electrical switch)

1992 olds 88 stalls. after it sits for a half

Is the Service Engine Soon (or Check Engine) light illuminated on the instrument panel? If so, then have someone pull the codes and post them back here. Autozone will do this for you at no cost.Caution: don't purchase any parts after reading the codes on their recommendation! If no codes, then suspect either a bad crankshaft sensor or camshaft sensor. There are other possibilities too, but these are primary. I have seen MANY bad crank sensors do exactly what your describe without setting a code.

What does it mean when my 1999 rav4 will suddenly

Sounds like a vaccum problem, but I am not sure. It is not vapor locking on you is it? Maybe your fuel pump? A lot of possibilities.

Car is loosing power and keeps cutting off when sitting still

When is wouldn't start back up, did it at least crank or nothing at all.
