I came to a stop and when I went to accelerate the oil light came on and my car shut off. The second time I cane to a stop a few days later the oil light came on but it didn't shut off. Now when I crank it sometimes it'll shut off. I've been pumping the gas pedal three times then crank it it usually will start that way. It wouldn't start for twenty minutes the other day.

I am assuming that the oil is full on car. Hae your oil pressure manually checked at idle to make sure it is enough as this cold be a bad oil pressure switch. Then check your fuel pressure it may be to low causing the no start especially when hot.

Voltage regulator has gone bad. Change alternator and the 175 amp fuse or you'll be changing alternator again. If you need help email me gijesse77@gmail. Com
