CAR CUTTING OFF

I have a 94 Pontiac Grand Am GT, 6V, 151,000 miles. When I drive and get to a stop it aisle down and also cuts off. I have replaced the starter, alternator and had the battery changed. What could this be? I took it the shop, the first mechanic said is seem like it might be the control module. He said I needed to get a dianostic test. I had the test done and the mechanic there said it seems engine problems the oil was staying on the oxygen sensor and not burning right and not signaling the right time for fuel. The check engine light comes on. The battery gauge goes down to low battery nad then go back up unless it cuts completely off.

I have a 94 Pontiac Grand Prix and it burns oil pretty bad, it smokes after a few minutes. I took it in and I was told I need the following leaks repaired: 1. Oil Pan Gasket
2. Intake Gasket
3. Valve Gasket
with a grand total of $1600! I am a novice at repairing cars, but this sounds crazy! Anyway I could do any of these myself? Im a novice but willing. Please help.

Check your email. The valve covers get done when you do the intake gasket. Why do you need the oil pan?

My opinion is to do the intake your self, get hold of the guy doing the intake this weekend ASAP and see what he runs into and tools he used and then decide if it is right for you. You need to see why you need an oil pan. Have yet to do one at our shop...but that isn't everthing.
