My 1997 oldsmobile regency won't start attimes, I ll let it sit for a few minutes crank it over a few times then it'll start. At times it will spudder while driving, and other times just stop while driving. Im going 75 mph when it does it. Now the security lite on the dash is on. Any idea? Car has 98000 miles

The security light may lead to a no start for you. It indicates the factory secruity system is recognizing a problem. It can shut the engine down so it doesn't start at all. If that happens and you are away from home, turn the key to the run position and allow it to sit for 10+ minutes. The light will eventually go off and the vehicle will start.

Now, if it isn't starting only when the light is on, you need to take it to a dealer to have it checked. They are the only ones that have the proper test equipment. When it happens, try a different key. If that doesn't help, you need to have it checked. Also, if there is a check engine light coming on, have the computer scanned for trouble codes. Most parts stores will do it for free.
