I will try to be as accurate and detailed as possable as I think all these symptoms are related. First, if the car is driven a lot in a short time, then it has a hard time getting started again when shut off unless left for a day. Check engine light comes on after driving for about 5 or so minutes. Car has trouble going up hills and has actually stopped and stalled going uphill durring which the oil light came on. If car is hot then oil light comes on when stopped or idling. Sputters and tries to die when punching the gas. If hot then takes a long time to run smooth and won't eccelerate(any more than barely touching the gas peddle stalls it, any less also stalls it) Usually when starting after lots of driving blows light smoke and has bad fume smells. Failed e-check with high HC and CO. New muffler and cat converter did not fix that.
