Q: Van will start but then stops with oil light comes on

asked by on

My wife had been driving the van earlier and it was working fine. I went outside and started to let it get warm my wife said it shut off. I went outside and it was off. I restarted the van and it would not give any gas no vroom and then soon would cut off with the oil light coming on. The van is to the point to where I would start it but it cut off immediately and the oil light comes on. This is a all of sudden issue. The van is coming up on a oil change.

My car has 217052 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
