Okay so I'll be driving my car and it will act like its going to die like it has lost its testicles then it will grow a pair and start driving smoothly for about 5 seconds. It will not accelerate well and when I park it and shut it off and go to restart it, it will start then die. It is A 1995 Oldsmobile cutless supreme.

How long since a good tune up? Sounds like it could be dropping a few cylinders.(missing)
