There are three Oldsmobile model's that start with the letter A.Alero,Aurora,and the Achieva.
Check for codes on the engine computer. When it quits check for spark and gas pressure to see what is missing.
Probably a rev limiter, as most cars to this in park or neutral, because the engine is not under load and can be damaged if over reved.
It starts by missing and running rough when pulling a load, and worsens until the engine won't run at all.
A bad relay switch could be the culprit if dash lights remain on after engine starts in a Toyota. Cold weather can also cause these lights to stay on after the engine starts.
I have the same problem when I first turn on the ignition there are no dash lights and it will start and die like yours. If I turn the switch on and off or just turn it on and wait, eventually I get dash lights and starts fine. There must be a relay or connection point causing this problem - anyone know where these are? Chuck Walp@juno.com

The "plug" powers an coolant heater. A diesel engine starts easier if the engine is warm.
The solenoid activates the contact when the ignition key is on which inturn turn the engine then starts the engine.
Oil pressure shouldn't register at all until the engine starts and builds up pressure.
The ignition switch completes the circuit of electricity from the battery to the starter that actually turn the engine over and starts it.The ignition switch completes the circuit of electricity from the battery to the starter that actually turn the engine over and starts it.
After 50.000 miles or so. Also if the car starts to use more fuel than is normal, or if the engine starts to lose power or if the engine starts to get too noisy.
