2001 Dodge Intrepid - Many issues

My car stalled on me coming home the other day
.I couldn’t excellorate to much. Because I thought it was gonna die before I made it home. Oil light came on about a week ago. And it flickered when slowing down. Codes come on it for EVAP evaporative system. And emissions leak or control.

Oil light: Did you check your oil level and add if needed?
EVAP codes: post the actual code numbers, format P0123.
How many miles on this car.

If you drove the car with the oil pressure warning light on until the engine quit the engine is likely damaged, you will need to replace the car. The evaporative emissions faults will be irrelevant.

Not necessarily. According to the OP the oil light flickered, it wasn’t on steadily. Not good but not as bad as your scenario.

What motor do you have?

The oil warning light is the most important of these issues, suggest to focus on that first. I’d start w/a routine oil & filter replacement job.
