Having problems with your Cars & Trucks ?

I have a 2006 Dodge Stratus SXT 2.4L and my car was driving great and all of a sudden my car starts to stall and it wouldn't go over 20 mph and my check engine light starts blinking and my oil pressure light came on. I pulled into a gas station and my car turned off, but the lights didn't. I tried to start it again, but it seems like it's not getting any fore to ignite. What can I do to fix it?

2003 Saturn Vue pulling 1 3 5 misfire codes. I have just replaced the intake and new coil for the 1 3 5 but didnt fix the problem.

The longer I just sit there the worse it gets and it smells like rubber burning. I have put 2000.00 in this car trying to fix this problem but nothing has worked. Any suggestions?
