MODELS TROUBLE STARTING, LOSS OF POWER

1998 Oldsmobile Other

Transmission problem
1998 Other Oldsmobile Models Two Wheel Drive Automatic 130000 miles

My car has been previously salvaged. It is an Intrigue. I just took it in to get a new belt, oil change and blinker fixed. Two days later I had to try starting it a few times. It would start and then die. This has happened about every other time I try to drive it. Sometimes it dies after I drive a few yards. Also twice it has lost power steering while driving it. If I try restarting it is usually fine. I have been reading and think it is either a transmission problem or something wrong with the theft system thinking that I am stealing the car and it shuts itself off. Also we just moved to the mountains and not sure if that would have anything to do with it. I would appreciate and information you could give me. I am scared everytime I drive it. Thanks so much!
