try a bottle of fuel injector cleaner (it'll work on carberators too) Quite possible that a fuel pressure regulator is out of range, and/or a broken wire at the oxygen sensor. Bad MAF sensor- Get one NOW !

Why does the oil light come on when your car stalls?

The light comes on when the car stalls because the engine is not running and the pump therefore is not pumping. The pressure will always be 0 when the engine stalls and the light is directly related to pressure. This is normal, you have no problem, other than the engine stalling.
