My 1996 Olds Cutlas looses speed almost to to a halt, if I turn the key off and
restart it again no problem for a very short amount of time then repeats doing
this, I have gas no problem with RPM, what is the cause for this

It is a 1996 not 1994


Have you checked the transmission fluid? It the engine is revving but the car is not moving, sounds like a transmission problem.

Yes fluid level is good dark, so it needs to be cleaned soon, I tried Stop Slip, but that doesn't help. Right now I thought I would run it around the block, but the shifting gears won't even move. Help!
