    The car was running fine--Then it lost power going up a hill-when I came to a stop at a light it started shaking-WHY?
    I was low on fuel--and fuel I got last was from a cheap gass station--The anti freeze light comes on -and then goes away.

I would fill it up with fuel and see if the problem persists. It could be an issue with the fuel pump and low fuel. On the up hill it could have tilted far enough that it wasn't able to pick up gas. It is actually best to never go under a 1/4 tank. It keeps the fuel pump cooler by being surrounded by gas instead of just air.
Thank you,
Lee

Hello
The engine in this car is electronically controlled fuel injection, whenever a problem like this occurs the very first thing that must be done is to have the system computer control module (called the PCM) tested for fault codes, if nothing shows there then other testing will be required based on the symptoms, these include fuel pressure testing and ignition system diagnose on a ignition system analyzer.

    Why ask and then ignore the advice? The test is the most basic of the procedures to isolate the problem, and is ALWAYS the 1st thing done when an engine develops your kind of problems.. One question when you say antifreeze light do you mean the hot engine indicator or low coolant warning light?

Difficulty starting after stopping for a short while


Without more input I'll give you two scenarios 1 the starter is showing signs of weakness and hen it gets hot it does not have the strength to spin the motor as it should. 2. The ignition timing needs adjusted, it may be advanced a bit and need retarding, especially with the low grades of fuel we are getting these days , you might try a higher grade of fuel or possibly an octane booster which you add when re-fueling.
Hope this is useful. Let me know please. gl...dc
