You need to decide if it a fuel or ignition problem. While having someone crank the engine, take off the air cleaner and spray a small amount of starter fluid in the throttle body. If it starts, check the fuel pressure. If not, while cranking the engine, pull a sparkplug wire out of the dist cap. If there is a strong spark, system is ok. If no spark, could be bad rotor, module, map sensor. cooling system sensor etc. Lots of possibilities

Loss of oil pressure

How many miles are on the motor? Are you using the correct weight oil?

As oil warms, it gets thinner, and the pressure will drop as a result. When you say the pressure comes back after re-starting, is that after the vehicle has been sitting long enough for the oil to cool down, or does the pressure come back if you shut down and immediately restart?

I have a 1995 Buick Regal custom 3100 eng. The car almost stalled when I came to a stop at a red light. Then about 5 min later the car shut completely off . It wouldn't restart. I have replaced the fuel...

You may have oil in the pan but that does not mean you have oil to the lifters, rods, etc. It sounds as if the oil pump has gone bad and not enough pressure to keep the lifters filled. To try an easy solution, change the oil filter. There have been occasions where the filter plugged up, there is a bypass to let oil through, but it is not the same as a good filter. If the pump is good it will fill the new filter in 30 seconds or so.

1995 Chevy Lumina has a hard time starting up in hot and cold weather after vehicle sits over night, or for more than 3 to 4 hours, it take three to four turns of the key in the ignition before car starts,...

You may need a mechanic for this.
The strong gas smell and the hard starting could be connected.
You could have a leaking injector, or faulty pressure regulator. And you could have a fuel leak in the line.
A mechanic would do a visual inspection of the line from the tank to the engine, and check the cylinders for raw fuel when the engine is off.

Hi, if it re starts immediately and requires choking it is a fuel related problem. If it has to sit for a while before restarting, check for lost spark as soon as it stops. If no spark make sure the unit is level and oil is full when sitting level otherwise the oil cutoff switch will shut it down. If oil and unit levelling are ok and there is no spark the cdi unit is most likely faulty. Hope this helps, regards Phil.

1995 ford taurus v 6 stalls when hot restarts on cold

I had one with a poltergeist in it. It might run fine for weeks and one day when it's above 90 it would shut off. Let it sit for about a half hour and it would run fine for a few days or weeks. The Ford dealer could not figure it out. I found out it was not getting fuel even though it had a new pump and filter, same problem. Found a good used fuel regulator and that seemed to help out as the old one was full of rust. It shut off about 6 months after that and restarted & I soon sold that problem.

1995 Taurus 70,000 miles. When sitting at a light or what naught, the oil light flickers. Checked the oil, at full level. This vehicle has had it's oil changed every 3500 miles.

I would verify the actual oil pressure is with a "wet gauge'. The sending unit may be bad. I would also verify if it's idling at the right idle speed.

1995 Taurus will not restart after sitting 5 minutes. After sitting for approximately an additional hour will restart.

With the spark dying it sounds like electric problems. Your coil can be failing when it builds up heat sitting. The fan air and air from driving can keep the coil cool but then it acts like a heat sink when the engine sits.
The battery can also play out in heat, have it tested. Finally the ground wires could be dirty. The motor has more compression when hot. This time of year cold oil is not a factor on cold starts, so you do not have problems on the initial start. The starter ground seems okay, but the chassis ground for the ignition could be corroded.

My 1995 Acura Legend has a oil light that comes of and on. I recently drove it 50 miles when off the highway the car shut down on me. But turns over when trying to restart.

When your oil light often refered to as a "dummy light" comes on you should immediatly shurt your car off and call a friend to bring you oil. If you have checked your Oil (with the car off and sitting for a few minutes) and it is all the way to the second dot on the dipstick then your oil level sensor needs to be replaced.
